L.E.A.D. Clothing Recycling Bins

A great way to support your local L.E.A.D. program and help the planet.

For each L.E.A.D. Clothing Recycling Bin placed in your town,we will place $350 per bin, per year, in your L.E.A.D. account.  These funds can be used for L.E.A.D. merchandise, L.E.A.D. workbooks, training, supplies, and the L.E.A.D. Conference.  This is a quick and easy way to fund your local L.E.A.D. program. 

Remember, you are also helping the environment and this is a great way to get schools involved.  (1) More than 15 million tons of used textile waste is generated each year in the United States. (2) Clothing and textiles are nearly 100 percent recyclable. (3) Despite that fact nearly 85% of it end up in the landfills.  (4) Recycling clothing and textiles decreases the use of natural resources, such as water used in growing crops and petroleum used in creating new clothing and textiles. (5) It also decreases the need for chemicals used in manufacturing new textiles and the pollution caused by the manufacturing process. 

In short, this is a great way to keep our communities green while also helping fund your local L.E.A.D. program.  We feel strongly, L.E.A.D. Clothing Recycling Bins is a great way to keep your town green while helping fund your local L.E.A.D. program.  For more information please call the main L.E.A.D. office at (609) 259-2500.
