With today’s society of social media and instant gratification, the fashion industry is taking full advantage. People are addicted when it comes to buying clothes and trying new popular trends. I’m sure many of us enjoy shopping and trying new styles of shoes, jeans, tops, jackets, and more to express our individuality to the world. But have you ever thought about where all that clothing goes after you’re done with it? Do you donate it? Recycle it? Trash it? What about the clothes that don’t get sold in the first place?

85% Of Our Clothes End Up In Landfills Or Burned

It might come to a surprise to learn that around 85% of textiles thrown away in the U.S. are dumped into landfills or burned — including unused textiles and unsold clothes. Furthermore, it is estimated that the average American throws away about 37kg/81 pounds of clothes every year– that’s the weight of a pre-teen child! And that’s only counting the U.S. To give you an idea of how big the global textile waste crisis is, imagine a garbage truck fully filled with textiles and clothes being thrown into landfills every single second of the day, every year.

Even if we tried to recycle all of our old clothes, it’s important to understand that a lot of these textiles —about 60 percent of them — are not recyclable in the first place, which is why they end up in landfills or burned. Many of our clothes are made with plastic. Some of the synthetic fibers in our clothes are commonly known as polyester, nylon, acrylic and others. These fibers are made from crude oil, which makes them almost impossible to reuse in other ways — meaning they cannot be recycled or composed. There are numerous eco-friendly fibers that could replace plastic in clothes, but because there are no restrictions or laws, the fashion industry continues to actively participate in using plastic fibers in their clothes.


United Global Threads is a for profit entity.  We understand you have options as far as places to discard and recycle your unwanted clothes, shoes, and household items.

Charities That Matter To Us

We put a lot of thought into which charities we want to contribute to. For us it's personal.

Dedicated to Serving Survivors

Healing Action provides direct services to adult survivors of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

Healing Action was founded to fill in gaps in care that Founding Executive Director, Katie Rhoades, experienced as she was exiting the life of commercial sexual exploitation and addiction.

With a focus on trauma-informed, survivor-centered care, Healing Action strives to fulfill our vision of a community free from exploitation.

Your Donations Help Fund This Worthy Cause

You will be helping fund programs that support the victims of human trafficking on their path of rehabilitation and programs to help stop it happening before it begins! 

We don’t want to believe this is a real problem, but it is.  

Awareness vs. Understanding of Human Trafficking.

It’s essential to move past myths, stereotypes, and fears that feed panic around Human Trafficking. We need to replace these dangerous myths with a deeper understanding of how human trafficking happens to create ways to stop it before it even happens and help survivors.

The Golden Rule

Women should always be respected. They are our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, and fellow human beings that deserve to be respected as such. 

That is appalling. I don’t even think our community is even aware of this scary fact.

Help us bring awareness and assistance to women that need it. 

We really were drawn to the fact that the founder herself was a victim. In many cases of addiction or victimization, the best person to reach out and help, is to have someone that’s experienced it. They can relate and have this common bond, which allows them to really listen and accept the help. Her story is so inspirational, and is just another reason we chose her organization.
