GREEN BY THE POUND!
What is "Green By The Pound"?
Green By The Pound is a program the encourages everyone to bring in their used/unwanted textiles or overstocks if you are a retailer, instead of throwing them in the waste bin which eventually end up at landfills and pollute our planet. Join us in our fight for a green planet pound by pound. Through this program we hope to accomplish the following yearly:
Increase Textile Recycling Rates
Reduce Post-Consumer Textile Wastes by at least 21,120,000 lbs, thus saving the city & taxpayers $464,640 as it costs $44 per ton just to unload or dump the waste at a landfill.
Reduce Methane emissions, a harmful greenhouse gas and a significant contributor to global warming
