Green Team Textile Collection

Green Team Textile Collection

Did you know that textile waste accounts for 5% of all landfill space? Approximately 21 billion pounds of clothing and textile waste ends up in landfills each year.

Please help the BSI Green Team prevent discarded textiles from entering the landfill waste stream.

The Green Team is collecting used, clean textiles to upcycle into braided rag rugs for every classroom peace center.

Please consider donating old sheets, curtains, tablecloths, jeans, t-shirts, and other items of clothing. Unfortunately, we cannot take towels, sweaters, or very plush items.

A collection box will be downstairs in the Main Lobby until January 16th.

Thank you from the BSI Green Team!
