The simple act of textile recycling can make a huge impact on leading cleaner, greener lives in our communities.
(PRWEB) April 05, 2014
American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS) will participate in official Earth Day 2014 events nationwide this month beginning on April 5th. ATRS proudly pledges to create Greener Cities by sponsoring Clothing & Shoe Recycling drives at various locations and increasing community awareness about the huge impact textile recycling can make.
Clothing, shoes and household textiles are one of our most recyclable and renewable resources. In fact approximately 95% of unwanted textiles, whether worn or torn, can be reused and recycled. Yet only 15% of textiles are diverted from our community landfills. Earth Day 2014 represents a significant opportunity for ATRS to share the work it does each and every day in providing free, easy and convenient textile recycling solutions in neighborhoods across the nation.
"Earth Month is the perfect opportunity get out to participate in fun-filled, family friendly events in our neighborhoods," explains Debra Stevenson, Chief Marketing Officer for ATRS. "The simple act of textile recycling can make a huge impact on leading cleaner, greener lives in our communities."
