The ReThreads Textile Recycling Program was launched in November of 2010.
Textiles are the oldest recycled commodity, yet only a fraction actually get recycled or reused, leaving millions of tons of usable cloth headed to landfills each year despite the many charitable organizations collecting used textiles. Materials collected through ReThreads will be re-worn domestically or shipped to those in need in Third World countries.
It is vital that garments be gently worn and free of rips and stains, clean, dry and bagged. Please remove all hangers.
