us clothing collection and habitat protection: planet aid collected and processed 49,000 tons of used clothes, shoes and textile in states from maine to california. Collecting unwanted clothes saves landfill space and reduces production of methane. Reusing already manufacturedclothing and other textiles saves millions of gallons of water and reduces the use of fertilizer and pesticides (in cotton production). Recycling or reusing one pound of clothes saves on average 3. 6 lbs of co2. In 2014, planet aid saved 355 million pounds of co2 through its recycling efforts - a significant contribution in the fight against climate change.
international training and capacity building: as part of its commitment to international development, planet aid undertakes programs of international exchange and training as well as information and education of the us public in matters related to international development. Planet aid works closely with non-governmental organizations in a number of developing countries to assist them building staff capacity and move towards self-sustainability.
