REFIT™ is the latest textile sustainable circulation program from SINGTEX where 100% polyester single-material clothes are decomposed, reassembled, and reproduced into brand-new clothes.
Persisting on the concept that recycling is not accepting “garbage,” but rather receiving “resources,” REFIT™ hopes to implement the “Textile to Textile Sustainable Circulation Program,” to incorporate the eco-friendly principle into the source of product design, to wear the determination of protecting the Earth on the body!
REFIT™ Smart Clothes Recycling Box was jointly developed by SINGTEX, TDRI and Miniwiz. Through smart technologies, this recycling box is capable of identifying the materials of the textiles, solving the issue where mixed materials are difficult to recycle for reproduction, thereby enhancing the efficiency and feasibility of old clothes recycling.
Moreover, the materials used to produce the recycling box were further recycled from old clothes and discarded materials from the clothes manufacturing process.
