Do you participate in the circular economy? 🔄

The circular economy is more than a trendy concept! It really is the way of the future. Our ancestors understood it, we just have to reclaim it.

With my products and my company, I touch on several spheres of the circular economy:

  • 🗑️ Waste management: my products are reusable rather than disposable after use
  • 🗓️ Sustainable purchase: my products are designed to last several years
  • 🧩 Eco-design: I design all my products to reduce the use of materials
  • ⚜️ Responsible consumption: I favor local distributors for my purchases, and I use scraps when possible (e.g. terrycloth make-up remover wipes, slipper coasters, Mr. Freeze covers)
  • 🪡 Extension of the duration of employment: I offer repair and alteration services for clothing and other textile products

And you? What is your contribution?

❓ Did you know?

The terry side of my make-up remover wipes is made of scraps. Pieces too small for the company that provides them to me,Coco Caribou, which makes great hair towels, by the way. In Quebec, most textile companies send their scraps to the trash 🚮, because textile recycling is almost non-existent. 😢

Coco Caribou uses the largest scraps to make large make-up remover wipes and squares, as well as hair bands. She also sends several scraps to ChipieCharlie for her bath mitts. And she also provides me with a good amount of small pieces for my wipes! 🤝

Share this info in your entourage to all those who need to remove their makeup and who have the environment at heart! 🤝 Choosing Taille & Retailles wipes means promoting the circular economy. 🔄

clothing recycling

Do you know where the clothes you no longer wear end up? Or that you donate to organizations.

Here is an article that sets the table regarding our situation in Quebec and the hopes that we have one day to see more confections with recycled textiles.

I applied for my make-up remover wipes, which use terrycloth scraps in their manufacture. 😇 Wish me luck! 🍀

Unite to recycle better ♻

Following the recycling “crisis” a few years ago, sorting centers and local production companies developed more and more projects in order to be able to work together and locally in the same direction.

Very interesting report on the subject (capsule #6 of the Bac-à-bac series by Eco Enterprises Quebec).

Could this system of production and consumption be the solution to get out of the recycling crisis? Could this also be the way to optimize the economy to reduce its impact on our environment?

Here is a report from Eco Enterprises Quebec which takes stock of the situation:
