We live in a world of fast fashion and overall, clothing is getting cheaper. According to the U.S. EPA, a whopping 85% of all discarded textiles - 11 million tons - are sent to U.S. landfills every year. While there is an abundance of clothes in wealthier countries, seventy percent of the world's population continues to depend on secondhand clothing to clothe themselves and their children.USAgain is connecting those who have surplus clothing to those who need the clothing.
With our TreeMachine, we provide communities with a convenient and eco-friendly option to rid themselves of excess clothing, which is diverted from landfills. By exporting clothes and shoes to struggling countries we generate revenue, create green jobs here in the US and abroad and help to improve the well-being of people around the world. By putting clothes back in the use cycle we conserve precious natural resources and limit the emission of greenhouse gases to fight Global Warming and the Climate Crisis. What's more, we plant a tree every time the TreeMachine is full.
