TEXTILE BANKS MATTERED, STILL MATTER, AND WILL MATTER EVEN MORE
About Jose Baladron
Jose is the National Recycling Development Manager at the clothes reuse charity TRAID. He manages the textile reuse services provided by TRAID, including our UK-wide network of textile banks, and works closely with local authorities, businesses and the wider community to divert clothes from the waste stream and increase clothes reuse rates.
Textile banks enable communities to spark a series of powerful environmental and social outcomes including reducing carbon emissions and water footprint, boosting local employment, creating volunteering opportunities and contributing millions of pounds to UK charities to achieve a vast array of goals. Textile banks make it easy for everyone to reuse their clothes and are a tool which must be championed, cherished and sustained by us all.
