How does one recycle fabric?



  1. 0 Votes

    You can recycle fabric by donating it to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Purple Heart, Soles4Shoes or PlanetAid. If you can sew you can easily use old fabrics for repairs, quilting or re-using (such as cutting up old shirts for dust rags).

    Textile Industries use unused fabric by donating to recycling agencies or selling to manufacturers who make materials with used materials.

    The best way to recycle fabric is to reuse it until the fibers pull apart and wear out.  The average cycle of a t-shirt, for example, could go from wearing it out to wearing it as pajamas to using it as a cloth to wipe down your car.  If the clothing has only been used lightly, donated it to Goodwill or the Salvation Army.  At the end of the day, the ultimate goal is to keep fabrics from going to the landfill and there are a number of creative ways to do that.
