Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the amount of post-consumer textiles collected from various resources, by providing sustainable textile recycling solutions to residential property owners, retailers, government offices, hospitals, and hotels.

Our Goal

Our goal is to create easy and convenient access to clothing and household textile collection boxes throughout California. This will increase the number of reusable textile materials collected and diverted from landfills.

We provide solutions for reusable and recyclable textiles.

We provide as-needed textile collection services to property managers, residents, and business owners within San Mateo County.  We accept unwanted clothing, shoes, and household textiles.

Recycling is everyone’s responsibility, just as it only takes one to make a positive change the same is true for negative impact.
