Recycle

Instructions

If in good shape, please donate or resell your clothes at a local second-hand boutique or consignment store. If not, put "mostly clean" shirts, jeans, and socks together in a clear plastic bag. Shoes and belts are not currently accepted for recycling.

Alternatives

In general, buy fewer clothes. Prioritize quality over quantity and buy second-hand instead of new, if possible. The better the quality of the item, the better its resale value, and the longer its lifespan, whether it's in your closet or someone else's.

Facts

Many Salvation Army stores, Goodwill stores, St. Vincent De Paul stores, and I:CO drop-boxes (in commercial businesses) accept clothes, fabric, and textiles. Call your local outlet and inquire about textile and rag donations.
