April 22: Value Village Earth Day Call to Action Installation: Landfills Shouldn’t Be Laundry Piles

 

What: North Americans send over 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills every year, 95 percent of which could have been reused or recycled. Value Village has developed an installation made from thousands of pieces of used clothing that will represent the environmental impact of clothing discarded in landfills instead of being reused or recycled. At this interactive installation on the rocky shores of Alki Beach, people will be able to walk through, touch and learn about the environmental impact of clothing and textiles.  


Why
:  Value Village is a reuse company that realizes the potential in every item; we want to build consumer awareness and move toward changing behaviors. In Washington State, our local stores diverted more than 45 million pounds of clothing, textiles and other items from local landfills last year alone.
