Recycling with Helpsy



What is helpsy?


Helpsy is an organization that collects pounds of clothes — 20 million just last year! They set up container locations as well as up-cycling materials. In addition, the organization gives clothes to those in need.


Why is this important?


The 20 million pounds that they saved from the landfill has the impact of cutting 320 million pounds of CO2 emissions, 20 billion gallons of water, and the electricity usage of 10,000 American homes.
