The San Francisco Department of the Environment is featuring 28 African American Environmentalists during this celebratory month. This list is just a few of the many people doing amazing work on environmental issues – from urban and rural agriculturists to environmental justice advocates to naturalists to scientists.
San Francisco Environment wants to help you drop off unwanted clothes, shoes and linens at a location near you.
Why is this important? San Franciscans send 4,500 pounds of textiles to landfill every hour.
Most of the 39 million pounds of textiles we send to the waste stream each year can be reused or recycled into insulation material, flooring, packaging, or cushioning in stuffed toys, insoles, and bags.
Visit San Francisco Environment to find out more about the textile recycling program.
