T is for TRAID

Posted: April 28, 2011 in Charity, Education, Poverty

Textile Recycling for Aid and International Developement is a charity based in the UK that works to protect the environment, reduce waste and educate the public on environmental and world poverty issues. To accomplish these goals TRAID operates over 900 textile recycling banks where clothing is donated and saved from landfills to be sorted through and sold at TRAID shops.

Clothing that is damaged, stained or torn is redesigned and sold under the award-winning recycled label, TRAIDremade. When the organization members are not sorting through clothing they are raising money for expansion of recycling projects and educating the public through assemblies and workshops.

In addition to saving the environment and education the public, TRAID has been actively combatting poverty around the world. Some projects that the organization has been a part of include Africa Now, Every Child, and the Fairtrade Foundation.
