Monthly Meeting – Tackling Textile Waste with FABSCRAP

August 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Lindsey Troop, Regional Manager at FABSCRAP, to talk about the textile waste problem facing the fashion and interior industries and the work FABSCRAP is doing to keep fabric out of landfill. Having opened a new location in Philadelphia in 2021, FABSCRAP is working with designers, home sewers, and brands in the area to not only provide a recycling service but to also provide affordable access to saved-from-landfill materials.
FABSCRAP is a textile recycling non-profit dedicated to ending the fashion industry’s commercial textile waste problem, diverting as much unused material as possible from being landfilled or incinerated. Lindsey Troop is FABSCRAP’s Regional Manager and runs FABSCRAP’s second location in Philadelphia, which opened November of 2021. Lindsey joined the FABSCRAP team in 2019 after witnessing firsthand the waste being created by the fashion industry while working in styling and merchandising and is passionate about keeping textiles out of landfill and inspiring creative reuse.
