Through donating clothing and other textiles to the Union Ridge Usagain bin, the community has already helped the earth. Union Ridge received a certificate from Usagain which shows how we have helped the planet this year. We collected 10,133 pounds of clothing and other textiles which will be reused by other or recycled into other products. Through this collection, we have already conserved the equivalent to the annual use of water of 167 homes, saved 58 cubic yards of landfill space, clothed 203 people, prevented the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere- an amount equal to what 15 cars would produce, and planted 25 trees. Great job Union Ridge community, let's continue helping the planet by reducing and reusing and of course contributing to our Usagain bin which is located in our parking lot.
