Post-consumer textile waste is a growing threat to our environment. Each American contributes 70 pounds of clothing and linens to landfill each year, and most of these could be re-worn, reused, or recycled. Each pound buried in landfill emits more than 7 pounds of CO2 into our atmosphere. This makes textile collection a critical next frontier of the recycling movement.
With its eye-catching design, operational efficiency, and innovative use of technology, the SFGoodwill goBIN™ is a modern solution to the issue of textile waste. The goBIN™ story provides a media platform that Goodwill member chapters across the U.S. can use to engage the public around the issue of textile waste.
