PlanetAid Helps Improve The Environment

My daughter Coree just sent me an email about Planet Aid asking me to let you know what they do and how you can help them...


Planet Aid recycles 58 million pounds of clothing and textiles

Planet Aid facilitates a free environmental recycling program that accepts textiles, clothing and shoes to lessen the burden of waste in North American landfills.

Last year, Planet Aid recycled 58 million pounds of clothing and textiles. This effort alone reduced the CO2 emission into the
atmosphere at an amount equal to keeping 13,000 cars off the road for a year! They also saved an estimated 60 billion gallons of water- equivalent to the yearly water usage of almost 2 million people.

Planet Aid donation boxes are now in several locations and are now starting to align in California in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles with businesses, schools and other facilities. They are now accepting any clothing, textiles and shoes!

If you are a business who would like to provide this free service in the Los Angeles community and help protect the Planet Contact: Jen Bolin, Corporate Affiliations Manager at 310-963-1566
