The Gaia Movement would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the people who donated their like-new and used clothing and other items. We had a very successful campaign to give back into our community in December 2016.
We had volunteers to sort, clean and pack coats, books and toys. As a result we have donated:
1500 Toys, 2000 Books, and 300 Coats in the community in Chicago.
Without your help this would not have been possible. Thank you and please continue to support us so together we do more for the planet and its people. Have a Successful 2017!
Every pound of clothes donated saves 8.8 lbs of CO2!
Help save the Environment
By donating gently used (or even new) clothes you contribute to the good health of our planet. Production of new cotton as well as other textile fibers puts a strain on the environment: To produce 1 lb. of clothes -that is 1 pair of trousers - requires on average:
10,000 lb. of water
0.5 lb. of fertilizers
0.4 oz. of pesticides
and results in emissions of:
6 lb. of greenhouse gases
