Approximately 12 million tons of textile waste go into landfills each year in the U.S.  With its recently expanded program called Clothes the Loop, The North Face is making great strides to reduce textile waste by setting an ambitious goal of collecting 100,000 pounds of apparel and footwear in the year 2015.

I had the opportunity to get the details on Clothes the Loop with Adam Mott, who oversees the Corporate Sustainability program at The North Face. He helps develop and integrate the sustainability strategy across the entire business by focusing on the development of environmentally responsible products, implementing greenhouse gas emission management and reduction programs, and by building community engagement programs based on the elimination of operational waste.
