Our Global Initiative projects are an organized effort integrating the involvement of organizations, individuals, and leaders around the world to address a global issue such as world hunger, community development and healthcare awareness.
Our HUMANITARIAN PROJECT
So, you’re ready to spring-clean your closet. You have a lot of clothes that you don’t wear anymore, and you’re ready for new ones. Well, you’re probably wondering what to do with all the old clothes. STOP! Don’t throw them away, DONATE!
When you donate your clothes, you are saving the environment from a lot of harm. According to the EPA, it costs $45 on average per ton to dispose of waste in a landfill. Clothing that sits in landfill releases toxic greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane into the environment when they break down. Lastly, making new clothes takes hundreds of gallons of water, and the production of new textiles accounts for 10% of all carbon emissions on the planet. These things can be avoided if you donate your clothes for reuse.
Reuse for people in need
Even though you don’t want your old clothes anymore, believe me, someone else will. There are many people in need of usable clothing. We have disaster victims, underprivileged people, and children in need of clothing, and your donations can help. When you throw away your clothes, they have no chance of reaching people who need them the most.
