Textile Waste a Growing problem

The average Canadian throws away over 80 pounds of textiles every year. In Nova Scotia, that waste will end up in landfills that are expensive to create, maintain, and eventually replace.

It is so easy to change this, and you can do your part today. Organizations throughout Nova Scotia keep used textiles from the landfill by accepting them in charity bins generally found in public locations like the parking lots of shopping centres.

Organizations like Diabetes Canada, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Salvation Army, accept textile donations and use revenue from the recycling of your used clothing and other textile products to fund the important programs they run here in Nova Scotia.

Protect the environment, extend our landfills, and fund important community programs right here at home by donating today.
