Why Clothing Recycling is Important:

According to WRW Canada, North America throws away 10 million tonnes of textile waste yearly in landfills. Textile waste takes up valuable landfill space and emits greenhouse gasses and methane gas. Recycling clothes using one of our clothing bins can help reduce waste and support local charities.
