From Waste to Wow: Textile waste innovations

The European Union produces around 12.6 million tonnes of textile waste each year with clothing and footwear accounting for 5.2 million tonnes, which is equivalent to 12 kg of waste per person annually. 


Greenful is a company that offers a practical solution to the issue of recycling textile waste. They produce a range of eco-friendly products using textile waste such as wall panels, decorative boards, structural insulated panels, and paving bricks. These products are characterized by their world-class innovation in the utilization of waste to create top-quality construction materials.  

During the webinar, the founder of  Greenful, Toomas Allikas, will share his experience and insights on how he built up the company by creating products from textile waste. 

What we will be hearing during the webinar: 

  • What products does Greenful offer? 
  • Where did the idea for Greenful come from? 
  • How long has Greenful been active, and how is the company doing? 
  • What are the challenges that Greenful has faced? 
  • What has been Greenful’s biggest success? 
  • The bigger picture of the textile waste problem and the solutions to it. 
  • Suggestions to companies regarding textile waste.


Toomas Allikas is a visionary entrepreneur, currently on a mission to solve the European textile waste problem with his company Greenful. Greenful exists to solve a critical problem — the global mismanaged textile waste problem that stubbornly evaded a sustainable solution — until Toomas Allikas created one when experimenting with different materials in a climate-KIC program. Greenful dedicates all their effort into providing innovative products, ethically sourced, and with minimal impact to the environment.
