We are the most throwaway society on earth and environmentalists have long been encouraging us to recycle as much as we can.
In the 48+ years we’ve been in business, Sunrise Trading has recycled over 10 million tons of old clothing that would otherwise use up natural resources to process and take up dwindling space on our landfills. By reusing the clothing we collect, we not only save space and energy, but place perfectly good clothes in the hands of those who need it.
If you’ve got one of our collection boxes near your store, we’ve noticed that people who drop off used clothing usually stay and shop. That’s good for business.
Those clothing collection boxes may look simple enough. But it’s the beginning of a chain that affects life way beyond the parking lot.
