Recycling of Clothes in USA
Gaia is collecting gently used clothes, shoes and other items thus diverting it from the landfills while saving on the resources, reducing greenhouse gasses and providing good clothes for hundreds of thousands of people. Through our green drop off bins we provide a convenient way for people in local communities to drop their unwanted clothes and other items. Through our green bins we constantly make people aware of the need to act environmentally conscious.
Selling to Thrift Stores and Whole Sale Dealers.
Gaia is selling gently used clothes-unsorted and per pound- to local thrift stores and second-hand wholesale dealers. The funds generated from the sales of clothes and shoes are used to support our Clothes Reuse and Recycling program, environmental projects worldwide and Planet Protection Pioneer Leadership program in USA.
