Day 76: Brought Clothing to Textile Recycler
At the local farmers market, there is a clothing and textile recycling company, WearableCollections, that I dropped off some clothing off at.
Strangely enough, it feels good to get rid a lot of this stuff.
The clothing donated to WearbleCollections goes to:
Third-party vendors purchase the donated clothing. At these facilities the clothes is sorted into three major categories.
1.Usable second hand clothing which is re-sold primarily in markets such as Latin America, South America and Eastern Europe.
2. Rags which are re-sold in various local markets and international markets.
3.What can’t be re-used as clothing or used as rags is sent to facilities where it can be broken down into fibers which can be re-used in many products such as fiberboard, upholstery, and even re-woven into new textiles.
