UK-registered charity organisation , The Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), is offering grants upto £1.5 million to support textile projects that provide innovative ways for textile waste to be recycled or re-used, keeping it out of landfill or incineration so that it remains a valuable resource.
The grants, of between £20,000 and £170,000, are available to organisations of any size, both commercial and not-for-profit. The money is for capital expenditure only; either for equipment or technologies (excluding software and apps) those enable recycling or re-use of clothing or linen waste textiles.
The aim of this grant fund is to address the need for increased capacity, sorting, handling, and reprocessing textiles from municipal sources. The money is part of the department for environment, food and rural affairs’ £18 million Resource Action Fund, set up to support key priority policy areas.
WRAP works with governments, businesses and citizens to create a world in which we source and use resources sustainably.
