On the global scale, there are enormous gains from re-using still serviceable goods. Since clothing, even used clothing, clearly has value in the marketplace, it constitutes income to those who receive it. Simply discarding this wealth results in a net worldwide economic loss. Reusing it results in a net worldwide gain, which in turn can them put to good use helping those in need.
I am aware there some kind of textile recycling in the city, but it’s on small scale. Those that can spare time drop some of their textile to donation centres like the Salvation Army Centre for Hope. Most of the times, they are always refusing donations. The other population that do not have time to drop the donations find throwing textile to the gabbage bin that still end up in the landfill. But if they knew there is donation close to their homes, like the nearest grocery store, they would would find it convenient to drop off textile.
My strategy is to put textile donation bins on all quadrants of the city for easier access to all our population and the truck will be picking the donation everyday so as to avoid litter around the bin.
We are lacking those bins and most of the textile recycling is dropped in the gabbage bin and taken to the landfill
Accepting of used clothing as part of “recycling” will help encourage the maximum recycling of textile waste, minimizing the amount of material that enters the waste stream, reducing the use of pesticides, and re-allocating production resources. And when a recycling effort also helps those in need it can be considered a sustainble endeavour.
