For the Environment We All Share

Planet Aid clothes donation bin for recycling of used clothingThrough the collection and recycling of used clothing, Planet Aid saves valuable resources that help reduce the emission of CO2 and other gasses that contribute to global warming.  Clothing that is decaying in a landfill or burned in an incinerator releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas. 

Similarly, growing cotton is energy intensive and requires large inputs of water, fertilizer and pesticides — the manufacture of the latter two chemicals results in substantial greenhouse gas emissions.  Thus, reusing clothing and reducing the need for manufacturing  new clothes is one thing we can all do to save resources and mitigate climate change. Planet Aid collects and recycles 100 million pounds of clothes and shoes every year, but much more needs to be done.
