Do you have old and unwanted clothes, shoes and linens taking up space in your closets and dressers? De-clutter your house and recycle these items properly at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee Community Textile Recycling Day.

Every year, 85% of all discarded clothing and other textiles  over 21 billion lbs.  is sent to U.S. landfills. Better Earth Textile Recycling (BETR) puts discarded textiles back in the use cycle through recycling and re-purposing, and in doing so keeps them out of landfills and helps to conserve the earth’s precious natural resources.  Find more information here:
