The volume of clothing U.S. Americans throw away each year has doubled in the last 20 years, from 7 million to 14 million tons. It is no wonder then that many religious organizations receive donations of used clothes and shoes from well-meaning community members. Countless worship centers find themselves out of room and out of solutions for what to do with the abundance of textiles received.
Hosting a USAgain TreeMachine provides your community a dedicated place to rid themselves of these items while still supporting their church, mosque, temple or synagogue. Our program helps increase community engagement while making a positive impact for PEOPLE and PLANET. By partnering with us, you take the lead in educating and bringing the community together in support of sustainability and green practices through a no-work, no-cost initiative.
People around the world are being affected by climate change and global warming. It is crucial we do something about this now. Every action to reduce carbon emissions counts, and reusing clothes is a very effective way to cut down on CO2 pollution.
By collecting clothes for reuse, we improve the lives of struggling families by providing affordable clothes, creating jobs for micro-entrepreneurs and planting trees that help absorb carbon out of the air.
Create a positive impact in your community now and help conserve precious resources. Together, we can make a difference!
