Le Relais takes Buddhists help for textile recycling

15
Jun '12
Le Relais, the French textile and apparel recycler, has entered into an agreement with the Taiwan-based Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation for increasing its collection of unwanted clothing items.
 
The partnership agreement was signed by Yao He-chiung, Vice President of Tzu Chi Foundation’s French branch, and Emmanuel Pilloy, President of Le Relais.
 
Le Relais, the largest French recycler operating recycling plants at 28 locations, currently owns around 13,000 recycling bins across France, through which it collects approximately 80,000 tons of textiles, clothing and other household items per year.
 
The French firm has very few recycling bins in capital Paris and the Foundation’s extensive ‘Paris network’ would work to increase awareness of people with regard to textile and apparel recycling in the French capital.
 
The agreement is expected to breathe a new life into Le Relais textile recycling programme and create several new jobs.
 
The Foundation said it would help Le Relais in boosting its Paris collection by asking its members to promote the cause for sustainable society.
 
The agreement was signed at Le Relais’s textile recycling plant in Ploisy, which employs 75 people and currently recycles about 4,000 tons of clothing per annum.
