Recycled To Date

Thanks to you and countless others, Recycle That and its affiliates have recycled to date, nearly 230 million pounds of used and unwanted textiles and household goods.

“Live simply so that others may simply live.” – - Mohandas Gandhi

Voluntary simplicity is a not a new concept.  Duane Elgin’s 1981 book, Voluntary Simplicity was a powerful catalyst for increasing awareness about the need for individuals and society to find sustainable ways to live.

Choosing to live a life of simplicity is not about choosing to live in poverty; it is about living in balance and helping people change their lives and collectively helping to create a better world. 

Take a step toward voluntary simplicity by donating your unwanted clothing, shoes, books and small housewares in one of our collection boxes to help others change their lives.

Recycle That container is located at the ReStore Billerica
