GREEN SANCTUARY TIP of the MONTH - Recycle Clothing and Textiles

Did you know that your old worn-out holey not even good enough for a rag socks can be recycled? Wherever you donate your used outgrown worn-out clothing include all textiles and clothing. For example, they will welcome clothing, towels, rugs, backpacks, belts, shower curtains, shoes, pocketbooks, bras/
underwear, sheets, blankets, etc. As long as it is DRY and ODORLESS anything even ripped or stained, with buttons missing, damaged zipper, etc. is acceptable.

The US Generates 25 BILLION POUNDS of textiles per year, only 15% gets recycled, leaving a total of 22 billion lbs going to landfills. This is a growing number, up from 18.2 billion lbs to 25.7 billion lbs to landfills from 1999 to 2009. Do your part.
