- Did you know that the EPA estimates that textiles make up 5% of all landfills in the US (Estimated 12.8 Million Tons)?
- Or that only 15% of unwanted clothing is actually recycled?
- Or that the average US citizen throws away an estimated 70 lbs worth of textile waste annually?
- When we think of waste, we often envision things like crushed up plastic water bottles, soiled food wrappers and dirty diapers – not a perfectly wearable pair of jeans that got thrown away just because they don’t fit anymore.
If you want your clothing to live on, but don’t want to mess with reselling, donating your items to New Day Reuse is an amazing option to help others while keeping your clothing out of landfills. Also, make sure to only donate items in good, wearable condition though. Don’t just use a clothing donation drop off as your “trash can” for your smelly old gym socks with holes in the toes.
