I pledge to not throw used textiles in the garbage because they have value in the circular economy and should be recycled. Instead I will collect used clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, linens and stuffed animals at home and take them to the town transfer station or other drop location where they can be recycled.
Sustainne business member Bay State Textiles has collection trailers at 40 town transfer stations in Connecticut and at many schools where they offer free drop boxes and pickup services and pay a $100 per ton rebate to the box host. Contact them to arrange for your free co-branded collection box today.
If you have a lovely piece of fabric, or old linens and window treatments, consider donating them to Cassandra’s Closet. The company upcycles used fabric, window treatments and garments to give them a second life as a treasured yet affordable costume for schools and theater groups. If you have bolts of fabric, or fabric scraps, Spruce Fabric Gift Wrap will repurpose them into reusable fabric gift wrap.
