Day 310: Donated Clothing and Toys to Salvation Army

A big box of clothing and toys were dropped off at the Salvation Army.

Clothes could also be donated to a charity to give to people who are less fortunate or be dropped off at a textile recycler

Besides getting put into the hands of someone that could use them, a recent study estimated that 386 million pounds of textiles enter the NYC waste stream annually, representing close to 6% of total waste. (courtesy of Wearable Collections). Now imagine what that number is nationwide?

What was your simple green act for the day?
