Mid-Atlantic Clothing Recycling, a professional recycling organization, collects clothes and then sells them (proceeds benefit the antidrug program D.A.R.E. America) to companies that market the garments at deep discounts in the Third World. (firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to donate.)
Clothes4Souls cuts out the middleman by sending your castoffs directly to small-business owners in developing countries like Haiti, who refurbish and merchandise the items themselves.
