READ'S recycling & fundraising
program provides used or unwanted clothing to third world countries. The
clothing donations you make enable the financially
disadvantaged to acquire used clothing at a fraction of its original cost,
thereby providing wearing apparel to those who cannot afford to buy new. An
additional percentage of the clothing collected is donated to domestic worthy causes.
The balance is recycled by being reduced to cutting cloth and fillers, thereby
creating a 100% recycling cycle.
In addition to assisting the unfortunate, READís
program dramatically impacts the environment in two ways:
1) Clothing collected
in bins is diverted from the landfills, thereby saving our soils and eco system.
2) Trips to landfills by trucks and ships are greatly lessened, thereby reducing
carbon monoxide emitted into the atmosphere.
