Day 76: Brought Clothing to Textile Recycler

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.

I’ve been doing a lot of clearing out the clutter in my life by donating some of my own clothing as well as the clothing of a friend to charity.

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.

What was your simple green act for the day?

    Congratulations to Wearable Collections!
    Now I know...I think I've already seen those clothes being sold on the popular sotres in my town. Look new and are very cheap. I guess I should have some of those in my wardrobe.
