Maybe your desire is to help other people, both children and adults. Possibly you are tired of squeezing into those old clothes while your friends continue to call you “tacky.” Have you lost 100 pounds and have no use for that ‘elephant size’ anymore?
Do not throw those clothes away while people around the globe are in need. Send clothes to charity and get cash for clothes or just give them a call and arraign for a pick-up through their various service locations. Just hand the driver the clothes, and he or she will hand you the cash!
Kids Clothing, Adult clothing, summer, autumn and spring clothing are all items we accept. Sell those old shoes and old belts that you never really liked. Cash-clothes will buy all those books that you have read and are now gathering dust.
Remodel the house, re-organise your closets, re-invent yourself with a totally new wardrobe. Clean out the attic, cellar and garage. Your leftovers will be of benefit to charities around the world. From these charities, your items will flow out to the many people who are in dire need of them. If you owned it, someone else can use it. No item goes to waste.
If clothes are too worn to be used ‘as is’ then they will be recycled and used for re-threading or insulation products. Natural fibres are better than the traditional insulating materials. They are safer, often more durable and frequently superior in other respects. The unusable clothing can also act as cushioning material for furniture. If the materials are not used for any other purpose, they become rags that are definitely re-usable. Only the zippers and snaps are discarded as waste.
The world has been demanding too much and discarding items more frequently. The concept of repairing and using products longer is not a ‘cool’ thought in today’s society. Send clothes to charity and recycling helps people to think in terms of conservation of resources and helps to reduce the carbon footprint. It is the very thing that will make life possible for future generations.
