The Apparel Industry is one of the most polluting industries due to the amount of waste that is created throughout the production process. It is essential to study this process to identify the problem, the causes and to propose solutions for a sustainable approach in this sector. This paper presents an exploratory study on the management of textile waste in Portugal in general and more specifically, through a case study in a confection clothing company.
