Textile Recycling Workshop Co-Funded by CalRecycle and Industry in Santa Barbara

April 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT

CalRecycle and Industry Co-Funded Textile Recycling Workshop in Santa Barbara

What do leading textile manufacturers, plastic pollution researchers, and alpacas have in common? They will all be at the SANTA BARBARA TEXTILE RECYCLING WORKSHOP!


The Santa Barbara Textile Recycling Workshop is hosted by the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) and the Santa Barbara Regional Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ), funded by CalRecycle. Industry leaders stepped up to co-fund, including UC Santa Barbara Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, Toad & Co, Mission Linen, Looptworks, Viavi Solutions, and other clothing brands who want guests to get a full experience from the workshop.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 9th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm for a day filled with learning and exploration on all things TEXTILES! The event will take place at the Goleta Valley Community Center, located at 5679 Hollister Ave, Goleta, California. Please see the official invite link below to RSVP and for event details.

You are welcome to join at your convenience and stay as long as you can. The workshop will include keynote speakers, demonstrations, and endless opportunities to learn about the world of textiles and why reducing textile waste is so critical. The workshop aims to expand responsible textile recovery in Santa Barbara County by exploring partnerships, feedstocks, and local service opportunities for textile reuse, repair, recycling, and green design.

Speakers and exhibits will include the Wishtoyo Chumash Foundation, Southern California Fibershed, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, Toad and Co., and well known upcyclers and recyclers.

Santa Barbara County is unique in the fact that we are home to some of the biggest fashion brands, wool producers, environmental researchers, and a community that really cares about their waste. This workshop will highlight all of these great facets and more. Santa Barbara County is in a key position to garner the momentum needed to tackle the textile waste crisis.

The CPSC works hard to advance textile recycling legislation, find innovative ways to handle textile waste and get California on the forefront of textile circularity.
