Recycling Old Clothes: No Waste, Just Charity
Reducing Waste Through Charity is a Way to Save the Environment while Helping Out
Many of us have loads of clothes. We usually have a habit of accumulating clothes from college days. Some even earlier than college days. This habit is not necessarily called hoarding, but it is typically a case of cherishing memories of appropriate clothing. After some time, we cannot even fit into these old clothes, yet we keep them anyway. When there is no more space in our wardrobe for newer and trendier clothes, we mull over which one should be thrown away. Old garments may be out of fashion, but still useful as long as they are in good condition. We may not want to wear them anymore, but there are people out there that would appreciate these old clothes.
Recycling Old Clothes
On this premise, 3E Accounting initiated a collection of old clothes and toys. Each employee contributed old clothes that are still in good condition as well as old toys. These items were collected to reduce waste. The old clothes could have been thrown away and will be added to the landfills. The garments received were then given to Community Recycle for Charity (CRC). It is registered as a non-government organisation that collects old things to be reused and give away to charity homes nationwide. The items that cannot be used will be sold for recycling, and the money will go to purchasing specific goods needed by charity homes. CRC visits all charity homes regardless of race or religion, especially one that needs help the most. Recycling old clothes is an approach to minimise waste that can harm the environment. Most garments are made to last, hence, giving them away to the needy is wiser than disposing of it.
From Community to the Needy
Many of us may have items that we wish to dispose of, but often we leave it out at the refuse chamber to rot. Some may have old furniture and kitchen appliances that we no longer need. Items like these can be sold to recycling centres for cash. But many of us cannot transport large items to recycling centres.
Additionally, we may not even know which recycling centre will accept items like these. The CRC has got that covered as they made things easier for communities to drop unwanted items in CRC bins located in most housing areas. If you have unwanted large appliances or furniture, you can even call the CRC team to arrange for a pick-up. These services are provided at no cost. CRC encourages the community to minimise waste by recycling. It is heartening to know that we are reducing our waste through a recycling method that provides for charity. It is like hitting two birds with a stone. You get to save the environment while doing charitable deeds.
Charity Begins with a Heart
In the spirit of giving, 3E Accounting has gathered and recycled old clothes to be given away to the needy, in December 2017. Spreading joy and kindness are innate as it makes more people happier and lives better. To provide and help others, all you need is a heart to do so. Hence, employees of 3E Accounting are always willing to lend a hand in one way or another, be it for the environment or people in need.
