Recycle 4 Purpose From Steered Straight Inc.

Did You Know?

According to data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), textile waste has increased by 811 percent between 1960 and 2015. The majority of this waste is made up of municipal solid waste (MSW). MSW encompasses discarded clothing, as well as small furniture, carpets, tires, and footwear.

The EPA calculated that in 2015, clothing and footwear produced 11.9 million tons of waste and 4.5 percent of total MSW. Decades of data gathering evidence a dramatic increase in textile waste, which grew from 1.76 million tons in 1960 to more than 16 million tons in 2015.

The reality is that Americans still opt to throw away most of their old clothes, because it’s easiest to do so and/or they think no one would want their castoffs. On average, people get rid of about 70 pounds of textiles each year, with 85 percent of these old or unwanted duds ending up in the trash truck. That means we are collectively generating 16 million tons of clothing waste annually. That’s the same weight as 400 cruise ships! Only 2 million tons from this 16 million ton quantity are donated for reuse and recycling.

Testimonial From Our Donors :

“We have used numerous clean-out services over the years and have never experienced such a professional job as we did with Michael and Steered Straight. They provided us with more than they promised in half the time they estimated. Our client was thrilled because all of their family member’s belongings went to a purpose rather than just someone’s pocket. We all appreciate steered straight’s purpose and are grateful that the things this family accumulated their entire life will literally now help save people’s lives through the Steered Straight mission. We recommend this awesome organization to anyone who needs an estate cleaned out or things you mo longer need. “
