Why Recycle?

Whatever your motivation, donating your used and unwanted clothing, shoes, books, and CDs/DVDs in a Recycle That collection box or at a participating Habitat ReStore is good for good for the environment, good for the local community and benefits a local non-profit or community groupy!  Recycle That is committed to the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

DID YOU KNOW?  

  • The average US citizen throws away over 70 pounds of textiles every year.

  • 2 MILLON TONS of textiles (clothing, shoes, purses, towels, etc) are diverted from landfills each year by recycling.

  • Textile recycling impacts greenhouse gas reduction (2 million tons annually) equal to removing 1 million cars from America's highways.

  • 45% of donated clothing is re-wearable and can be used by people all over the world.

  • Even worn or torn clothing and single shoes can be repurposed or recycled into new uses.

HOW ARE RECYCLED TEXTILES USED?

  • REDUCE consumer waste by redistributing materials vs. new manufacturing

  • REUSE products through domestic retail or wholesale outlets or by exporting it to developing countries.

  • RECYCLE products to transform them for additional uses, such as turning non-wearable garments and towels into industrial wiping cloths, or material fibers into insulation, stuffing and upholstry padding.
