Places to Recycle Your Clothing

Did you know that clothing and textile waste can take up to 200 years to decompose? Plus, textiles that sit in landfills emit large amounts of greenhouse gases while decomposing. Because of this we decided to put together a list with both local places and major retailers that will help you get on board and make a difference:
