Reverse Logistics and Waste in the Textile and Clothing Production Chain in Brazil

Abstract : The global environmental concern turns to the production of waste and its correct disposal. The chance of the natural degradation of this content is minimal, and logistics become an urgent discussion for all production chains. The lack of knowledge of Brazilians about recycling and non-education for conscious consumption hinders the development of initiatives in the segment. On the other hand, instead of adopting the necessary measures to implement reverse logistics and recycle these materials, companies are importing waste from other countries, neglecting the potential for income generation and sustainable business that could invest. The objective of this article is to evaluate the scenario of recycling initiatives and reverse logistics carried out in the textile and clothing industry in Brazil, through bibliographical research and surveys in Google and Facebook, internet sites and open data analysis of national and international bodies on the subject. There is a shortage of studies, and the appropriateness of the subject is urgent and necessary. From the results, it can be verified that without official records, government agencies’ efforts to implement reverse logistics and recycling and encourage the benefits of the activity, there is no way to solve the issue.
