On November 15th our country celebrates:
America Recycles Day
This year, the state recycling organization in New York State is organizing the First ever statewide Clothing and Textile collection day!
Social Lodge #713 is sponsoring a clothing drop off shed as a fundraiser and service to the community.
St. Pauly Textile, partnering with Social Lodge #713 installed a clothing collection shed (pictured below) at 1979 Kendall Rd. Kendall, NY 14476 for the community to use as a drop off for clothing. The clothing will be distributed all over the United States and world to those who can use it. Social Lodge #713 will in turn receive $40 for every 1,000 pounds of clothing that is donated.
The EPA estimates that the average person in our country throws away 70 lbs of clothing per year. That adds up to 3.8 billion pounds of unnecessary waste added to our landfills!
Most of that clothing thrown away is perfectly wearable by someone, somewhere. This program keeps clothing out of the landfill, helps out those in need,Â and helps out Social Lodge #713 with funding.
