29 tons of textiles donated in 2020
In 2020, a total of 29 tons (!!!) of textiles were donated in the clothing containers in our student housing areas. Textile recycling is both good for the environment and contributes to people in need.
Each tenant at AF Bostäder leaves about 5 kg of textiles to Human Bridge on average. Most textiles were donated at Kämnärsrätten (8,2 ton) and Vildanden (6,0 ton), see table below.
Thanks to all of you who leave your old clothes etc. in the clothing container, instead of throwing them in residual waste! With the help of Human Bridge's textile collection, the clothes are revitalized, and their proceeds go to aid projects
This is what happens with the donated textiles
