How does this benefit the world?
We create SO many jobs: Both in the US and in developing countries. For example, jobs for the workers placing and emptying the bins, for the workers in the sorting facility & packing department, jobs for the workers on the ship transporting the matrials to different countries, jobs for the workers at the remanufactring facilities, the truck drivers, the customs workers, all the way to the person running the textile shredding machine in India. And all the jobs in between.
We keep textile from entering the oceans and landfills: The EPA estimated that only 15% of the textile gets recycled inthe US. That’s 15 percent of 16.8 million tons per year, where does the rest go? In landfills, oceans and streets. Our goal is to eliminate waste from ending up in places where it shouldn't as much as possible.
Cost effective products: By using recycled materials, we help bring cost effective products to the market, so we can all save more money.
This is our win win win win system for everyone.
