Abstract [en]

With the population growing gradually and economy booming in the world, the need of textile product accordingly increases rapidly, which results in the big generation of textile waste. The disposal of textile waste brings in many adverse effects on environment, such as the landfill occupation. The production of textile product itself also causes much environmental concerning. In order to cope with the increasing textile waste and reduce the pressure of waste management, waste prevention is primary, as well as effective choice. The prevention of waste from textile can return ideal revenue from economic, social and environmental aspects. So many countries have conducted some researches and practices on the prevention of waste from textile. Sweden also has some existed prevention measures. But these prevention measures mainly focus on two stakeholders: consumer and charitable organization. 

Associated with the practical situation in Sweden, some existed prevention measures are transferred to the Swedish circumstance and then suggest a new prevention scheme about textile waste in Sweden. The suggested prevention scheme is based on four stakeholders’ (designer, retailer, consumer, charitable organization) point of view.
