By tidying up, you can do so much for so many, including yourself and your family by being keen on environmental sustainability. In fact, you can help end world poverty. For instance, there are almost 8 billion people on our planet. And, according to the World Bank, 10 percent of the global population survives on less than $1.90. In 2015, Ban Ki-moon said we had the resources to end world poverty. Along those lines, 70 percent of the global population uses recycled clothing. So, paying attention to what you do with your old stuff can lift up families who live in poverty with a hand-up.
World Poverty and Micro-Enterprise
Head2Toe Recycling partners with at least 4,000 micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations to combat world poverty. As a result, they sell recycled shoes, clothes, clothing accessories, and mobile phones. Moreover, we provide inventory for them to sell from what we collect in the United States. We do this by selling the merchandise to the small business owners. We do this because we know if we just gave it all away, we risk destroying economies around the world. And that would push families further into poverty. Meaning, by flooding the market with free items, local commerce gets ruined. So, as great as charity is, poverty is much larger than giving away free things.
Instead, when you join us, you’re helping us end world poverty responsibly. For example, when you choose to send us your old clothing and stuff, those things get sold in developing nations. So, you’re helping to build economies in developing countries around the world. By selling the merchandise to micro-entrepreneurs, we help develop and grow commerce. When you recycle, you support the planet and families living in poverty. It’s that simple.
Recycling helps people who live in poverty and need opportunities. As always, opportunity helps to ignite the light of hope. Help us leave a lasting legacy. Give a hand-up to thousands around the world and help in environmental sustainability. Like everyone, they too want the dignity to help themselves with a job and micro-business.
Find out how you can make a difference to end global poverty. When you send us your things, you help American charities. But you also support the planet. And, finally, you create opportunities for people who live in poverty in developing nations.
