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 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.
