Building on these advances, Re&Up currently operates facilities in Turkey and has plans to extend its reach across Europe and Asia. By 2025, the company plans to recycle over 200,000 tons of textile waste annually, increasing to over 1 million tons by 2030.This ambitious expansion plan positions Re&Up as a leader in the shift towards sustainability in the fashion industry.
