Ain’t Nobody Got Time, But You Can Still Make a Difference
Out with the old, in with the new right?
While this common saying is applicable to many things — especially former flames — it’s not all applicable to charitable donations, especially clothing donations. For example, did you know that the average American tosses out almost 70 — 68– pounds of clothing each year? When it comes to clothing, textile, and various fabrics, 99% of what is discarded can be recycled, reused, or re-purposed in some way.
Now that spring is here, you’re likely to a little spring cleaning, which includes your closet or wardrobe. Spring is the perfect time to donate clothes. Not only are you making a little extra room in your closet for the season’s latest style trends and fashions, you’re also contributing to an important cause.
Donating clothes not only helps those in your community who are in need, such as military families and veterans, but it also helps the environment by significantly reducing the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfills. How’s that for killing two birds with one stone?
However, it seems that nowadays, everyone is a little pressed for time due to hectic schedules. Between work, perhaps school, taking care of a family, and your personal life, it can be difficult to find time to blow dry your hair, let alone make a donation. Luckily, there are a number of local, regional, and even national organizations that pick up donations.
Clothing donations pick up allows you to donate at a time that works best for your busy schedule. All you have to do is contact the charity or organization you’d like to make a contribution to, select the items or articles of clothing you’d like to donate, leave the bag outside your home or work and a volunteer will come and pick up the bag containing your items. That’s it! Clothing donations pick up services are the perfect way to make a big difference when you only have a little time.
