Every year 21 BILLION pounds of textiles are thrown away in the United States. 45% of these textiles can be reused, 30% can be turned into wiping cloths, and 20% recycled into new products. Turning this problem around can start in your community.
Bay State Textiles Inc. services over 70 municipalities through out Massachusetts. With over 40 years of experience in the post-consumer textile waste industry, our management team can tailor a program to meet the needs of your community.
Bay State Textiles has a very successful school box program that brings this real-world problem into the classroom. We focus on the economic and environmental aspects of textile reuse. The Bay State program can also be a part of your schools community service and peer to peer educational requirements.
