According to the U.S. EPA, a whopping 85% of all discarded textiles – 12 million tons – are sent to U.S. landfills every year. USAgain, a green for-profit enterprise, works to reduce this textile waste by providing thousands of convenient locations across the US where you can recycle textiles any time of the day, any day of the year. By putting them back in the use cycle we conserve precious natural resources, prevent greenhouse gas emissions and save landfill space. What's more, the clothes are given a second life at affordable prices for people who can't afford brand new clothes. Textile recycling: It's a win-win-win proposition.

Throughout the month of November 2014, all participating schools will compete to collect the most textiles for recycling. The top five collecting schools will win cash prizes and all schools will raise funds for every pound collected.For more details click here.
