Global Warming

Donating old clothing helps reduce waste in Landfills, At the landfill, the food and Clothing that trash contains is decomposing and releasing methane, a greenhouse gas that’s 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide..

Environment

Fleece, flannel, corduroy, cotton, nylon, denim, wool, and linen. What can you do with these fibers when you’re finished wearing them, sleeping on them, or draping them over your windows?

One way to benefit both your community and the environment is to donate used textiles to recycling organizations. Most recovered household textiles end up at recycling organizations, who sell or donate the majority of these products. The remainder go to either a textile recovery facility or the landfill.

Recycling Textiles

Textile recovery facilities separate overly worn or stained clothing into a variety of categories. Based on data from the Council for Textile Recycling, it was estimated that 1.3 million tons of textiles in clothing were recovered for recycling in 2009. Some recovered textiles become wiping and polishing cloths. Cotton can be made into rags or form a component for new high-quality paper. Knitted or woven woolens and similar materials are “pulled” into a fibrous state for reuse by the textile industry in low-grade applications, such as car insulation or seat stuffing.

Other types of fabric can be reprocessed into fibers for upholstery, insulation, and even building materials. Buttons and zippers are stripped off for reuse. Very little is left over at the end of the recycling process. The remaining natural materials, such as various grades of cotton, can be composted.
