Are items like ripped jeans, stained shirts and coats with broken zippers ending up in your trash? Textiles are just too valuable to waste. By recycling textiles, the need to use virgin resources to produce an equal amount of clothing is eliminated. One T-shirt, for example, consumes about 700 gallons of water. Help us reduce the amount of material landfilled yearly and protect the environment by ensuring your textiles are always recycled or reused.
Gather up your damaged clothing, shoes, and rags for collection at the City Yards on Saturday, February 9th, 2500 Michigan Ave. February 9, 2012 at 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.
