Used Clothing Donation for Reuse and Recycling
I just learned that some 85% of recyclable clothes are being thrown in the garbage. I didn't think the figure could be that high.
Although the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy's Used Clothing Donation program does accept all clothing items, some are more likely to see quicker turnaround as resale than others.
Perhaps these lovely lady lacies will instead find their way into the textile recycling stream, which will safely reincorporate materials into things like furniture, mattresses, yarn, and paper products.
