The hospitality industry is a significant contributor to environmental waste. Currently, it generates a staggering 1,000,000 kilograms of linen waste each year, which ends up in landfills. Through our “Close the Loop” initiative, we are piloting an innovative recovery ecosystem for linen waste management and transforming discarded linens into fresh, purposeful textiles/ products.
The Linen Project is determined to divert at least 1 million kilograms of textile waste generated by hotels, significantly reducing the industry’s environmental footprint. Our approach goes beyond ecological impact—it also directly improves the livelihoods of waste workers, providing them with dignified and better job opportunities.
We are partnering with hotels to divert their discarded linen from landfills by collecting linens at their end of life. The linens are sorted and upcycled, paving the way for a closed-loop process that emphasizes resource conservation and regeneration.
The next step is our rental model solution, which ensures linens are handled sustainably, maximizing their lifespan. By adopting this sustainable approach, hotels not only minimize waste but also contribute to a more efficient and responsible linen management system. Linen Project has partnered with renowned hotel chains in Bengaluru and Chennai, joining us in our commitment to sustainability.
