Your Trash Talking Tuesday tip: Recycle your Clothes

Your Trash Talking Tuesday tip:
Check out the infographic and the link below for some amazing factoids. For instance, did you know the average T-Shirt wastes 700 Gallons of water during manufacturing alone? and one pound of textiles emits more than 7 pounds of CO2!

Textile waste creates pollution and wastes precious resources so before you throw your clothes in landfill bin, consider donating, selling or recycling them.

Waste nothing.

  2. Any suggestions as to places that have textile recycling bins? I normally wear stuff until it’s hanging in tatters, but i’d love to know of places for the tatters.

    • use http://recyclewhere.org/ to find these places and more, you might enter the search term, “rags” and see what you find…in fact, type anything into RecycleWhere, it’s a great Bay Area resource for reuse and recycling and safe disposal options alike.
