Abstract

The aim of this study is to review the current textile recycling system of Korea in order to promote and build a sustainable textile recycling system. As fast fashion has changed the climate of the fashion and textile industry across the world, excess consumption is profoundly encouraged and the volume of textile waste has been notably increased. In recent years, Korea has also faced a large volume of textile waste and its related environment and economic impacts. As a result, recycling practices have become critically important, yet its systems in Korean have not been fully settled as many interconnected problems are raise through the current process. Therefore, case studies are made between the UK and Korea systems, especially waste collection and distribution channels, to review and address the current problem in Korea with the aim of improvement.
