Monday, March 8th –“Clothing Conundrum”
Did you know that approximately 16 million pounds of textiles end up in landfills each year? 16 MILLION!!! And that’s just in the U.S.! While we can’t assure that all textiles will be reused, we can start to make a difference. If you are cleaning out your closets, please think about all the places that will take gently used clothing, such as the Goodwill, Salvation Army, Medina Children’s Home, Poshmark, Upcycle, etc. Go to www.greenamerica.org for the latest statistics on this waste. They also give three good steps to remedying the problem.
