Looking for another option for donating your gently used children’s clothing? Consider Planet Aid, a nonprofit organization that saves our landfills of 2.5 billion pounds of waste by collecting approximately 100 million pounds of clothing and shoes each year.
The clothing and shoes collected by the organization are donated to protect the environment and support sustainable development in impoverished communities around the world as well as on state and local levels.
According to the Bureau for International Recycling, secondhand clothing is a way of life for those in Africa and in some countries up to 80% of the population dresses in used clothing. In fact, approximately 70% of the world’s population gets their clothing secondhand. What a wonderful way to re-purpose your kids outgrown garments.
