How can I safely recycle more?

Recycling is everyone’s responsibility, just as it only takes one to make a positive change the same is true for negative impact. San Francisco started a zero-waste initiative in 2002 and among the projects is the zero-waste textile initiative these projects and initiatives should not be limited to San Francisco.

We aim to bring the textile recycling initiative to San Mateo County and expand into surrounding areas over the next five years.
