By noting that each Frenchman throws 12kg on average of clothing per year, which adds to all the waste we produce, GRDF has signed a partnership with the company Le Relais.
The realization of this project consist of the installation of 15 clothing collection points, allowing everyone to participate. GRDF is committed to recycle the working clothes of its agents and is thus contributing to its goal of upgrading 90% of non-hazardous waste by 2018.
Once the garments are collected, the "waste" will be frayed and transformed into thermal insulation for buildings.
In the Mediterranean Region, GRDF has made available 4 collection points, thus enabling the region to sign a partnership with Les Compagnons Bâtisseurs Provence, in order to reuse these insulation products for housing refurbishment projects in a precarious situation.
