More Recycling!

An update to my earlier post on Spring Cleaning and how to recycle your electronics.
Here are some more ideas from Organic Gardening on the other stuff in your closet that still may have a life to it:
  • Backpacks and Coats
    • Check with your local shelters, schools, and churches if they are collecting for underprivileged children
  • Boots/Shoes
    • Boots for Rangers for African rangers who patrol park boundaries and wilderness areas
    • Passages Northwest Outdoor exploration for girls of diverse backgrounds
    • Nike's Reuse-a-Shoe program makes surfaces for basketball courts, tennis courts, tracks, and playgrounds out of any brand of athletic shoe
  • Clothes
    • Donate to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army Store
    • Check with local shelters, domestic violence programs, and churches- especially with maternity clothes or baby clothes
  • Career Clothes
  • Prom Dresses for underprivileged students
