Designers- Textile Waste Survey

Thank you for taking a few moments to fill out this survey.  Your input is crucial to our work of creating resilient local economies while preparing for climate change by identifying the gaps within the clothing and textile industries in Pennsylvania and identifying the sources and quantity of textile waste in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.

The information you provide in this survey will be used to help identify gaps, highlight PA businesses and measure textile waste in our region. Please remember, the more we can support the local industry and suppliers (cut and sew facilities, pattern makers, fabric suppliers etc.), the more affordable and accessible these services and products will be for everyone. Any answers you provide will remain anonymous and will not be linked to your business. We greatly appreciate any information you are able to provide.
