According to the Council for Textile Recycling, the clothing recycling industry prevents 2.5 billion pounds of post consumer textile waste from entering the solid waste stream each year. Charities play a crucial role in the success of the industry, collecting clothing that might otherwise be headed to a landfill.
What makes Wearable Collections special is our ability to work with you to ensure a successful clothing recovery drive. Whether you are a local charity, school group, church, temple, or sports club, we can help you, publicize your clothing recovery drive, pick up the clothing after it’s been collected, and ensure that the clothing gets into the hands of people who need it—people as far away as Africa, Central America, and South America.
Best of all, after leading you step-by-step through your clothing drive, we will then pay you for the clothing you have recovered. Wearable Collections buys all clean clothing including shoes, pocketbooks, curtains, sheets, blankets, comforters, and towels.
A clothing drive is a great way to promote your organization, strengthen your community and raise much needed funds.
