Being Kind Textile Recycling

The U.S. EPA estimates that textile waste occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space.

While the EPA estimates that the textile recycling industry recycles approximately 3.8 billion pounds of post-consumer textile waste (PCTW) each year, this only accounts for approximately 15% of all PCTW, leaving 85% in our landfills.

The average US citizen throws away 70 pounds of clothing and other textiles annually.

SOLUTION
Since the mid 1940's U.S. charities and the post-consumer textile recycling industry have repurposed and recycled billions of pounds of clothing, household textiles, shoes, and accessories. This ensures your old clothing, footwear, and textiles continue to add value to the U.S. economy and beyond.

It is easy to be green - give us your unwanted textiles so we can reduce waste and help our planet. We are available to pick up unwanted items.


Please contact: support@beingkind.com for more information, or to schedule a pickup.
