Donate or Recycle Old Clothing.

Many people toss their old clothing in the trash, often meaning into landfills.

According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (2013), North Americans alone throw-out over 10.5-million tons of clothing each year, much of which could have been donated or recycled.

Each of us can do our part in solving this problem simply by donating our old clothing. This gives that clothing a second life for thrift store buyers, or to those in need in homeless missions.

Alternatively, that clothing may be recycled into something new.

Together, we can solve this manmade problem and help to give ourselves and future generations a better and cleaner world.
