Did you know 95% of all used clothing, footwear and other household textile products such as sheets, towels, curtains, pillows and stuffed animals can be reused or recycled, yet only 15% of reusable textiles are recovered from the waste stream?
Contrary to popular belief, donations in any condition are welcomed by most for-profit and nonprofit textile collectors alike. This includes stains, rips, missing buttons or broken zippers.The only unacceptable donations are wet/moldy items and items contaminated with oil or hazardous substances.
