Clothing & Textiles

Give your clothing and textiles new life!

The average U.S. citizen throws 70 lbs. of clothing away annually! Yet unwanted clothing can take on a new life in someone else’s closet or recycled for another use such as shop rags or stuffing for a new chair. Acceptable textiles for donation can include clothing (shirts, dresses, pajamas, ties, tec.), belts, shoes, blankets, comforters, decorative pillows, quilts, table cloths, stuffed animals and even pet beds. (Holes in textiles are okay.) Materials must be clean and odor free, so no oily rags or other materials that might be difficult to recycle or that would contaminate other clothing. Check with the donation facility first to determine what items they accept and in what condition.

Churches and civic groups often hold events to collect or swap clothing. Check papers and social media for opportunities.
