EkoLinq promotes sustainability through textile reuse and recycling.
EkoLinq is helping move California's Tri-Valley region toward a more sustainable future.
By diverting textiles from landfills, EkoLinq is extending the life of these materials through reuse and recycling while reducing greenhouse gases.
Textile manufacturing consumes significant natural resources including raw materials, water, energy, and in some cases, requires the use of fossil fuels. Just one cotton t-shirt requires 650 gallons of water to produce, along with harmful chemical compounds used in the production processes.
Over 14.5 million tons of textiles enter U.S. landfills or are incinerated each year. Clothing discarded to landfills generates methane (a greenhouse gas) during composition and leaches toxic chemicals and dyes into groundwater supplies.
EkoLinq uses multiple approaches to collect and remove textiles from the pollution cycle.

EkoLinq partners with The Green Group consortium, which shares our vision for a closed loop in textile recycling. The Green Group ensures all textiles collected are either reused or recycled into new products.
Additionally, EkoLinq contributes 5% of profits to eco-friendly, carbon capture initiatives such as:
Climeworks, working toward direct air carbon capture technology and sequestration.
