The Australasian Circular Textile Association (ACTA) is thrilled to share Australia's most comprehensive report in Textiles Materials and Flows (including uniforms and workwear).
ACTA have previously established that approximately 1,000,000+ tonnes of textiles are imported each year into Australia, across a number of different textile sectors. Based upon the State figures, this means we're sending over 8,000,000 tonnes of textiles to landfills every year across the country.
ACTA have consulted with a number of stakeholders to better understand the current state of textiles, specifically importation, consumption/use, and end-of-life. Based upon the data received, ACTA also utilised current import data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics to form a comprehensive view.
In relation to this report based upon the data and metrics presented, ACTA we're able to extrapolate the figures to accurately present a National perspective on textiles per capita.
