Implication and Benefits

Certex annually recovers:

  • 5,000 tonnes of used clothing, shoes and textiles via donations from individuals or surpluses from community enterprises and second-hand stores; and
  • 1,000 tonnes of surpluses from commercial networks and manufacturers that produce or use textiles.

The articles recovered by Certex are in great part sold in second-hand stores, to eco designers, to community organizations, etc.

Certex sorts 120 tonnes of clothing, shoes and textiles per week which amounts to 6,000 tonnes of textiles per year.
