Textile Recycling - Non-Profit Funding
Clothing for a Cause
Our innovative Clothing Recycling Program not only helps the environment, but has also provided assistance to international groups since 2005. The clothing we collect through various means is sold to international recyclers and the resulting revenue enables this support. Please contact us to learn more about our programs.
On a Global scale, there are enormous gains from re-using still serviceable goods. Since clothing, even used clothing, clearly has value in the marketplace, it constitutes income to those who receive it. Simply discarding this wealth results in a net worldwide economic loss. Reusing it results in a net worldwide gain, which in turn can then be put to good use helping those in need.
When textiles are recycled, the land, labour and capital usually engaged in textile fiber production can instead be put to better uses such as global food production.
Acceptance of used clothing as part of "recycling" will help encourage the maximum recycling of textile waste, minimizing the amount of material that enters the waste stream, reducing the use of pesticides, and reallocating production resources. And when a recycling effort also helps those in need it can be considered a sustainable endeavour.
