Carolina Textiles is a repurposing/recycling organization located in the Carolinas. Our Mission is to educate communities on the impact that textiles have on our environment through each step of its lifecycle. We then work with our communities to develop textile collection programs within the schools, solid waste services, and other sectors who remove textiles from our waste stream. These textile collection programs generate revenue to support the communities from which textiles were collected.

REDUCE

The amount of textiles sent to our nation’s landfills is staggering. The textile waste generated annually in the United States alone would fill every NFL stadium. Textiles are also the largest CO2 emitting material in the waste stream. Imagine the impact we could have if we REDUCE this number by half.

RECYCLE

According to the EPA, 97% of all textile waste can be RECYCLED. Material that is not suitable for resale can be repurposed into insulation, carpet padding, or other products.

REUSE

Hand-me-downs are the oldest form of REUSE of a textile product. Expanding upon this concept is exactly what Carolina Textiles is able to do. In addition, we generate revenue to support our local communities, while also keeping reusable second-hand clothing within the communities they are collected.
