If you’re looking for a flexible source of income that also benefits the environment, then a recycling franchise opportunity in Houston with Clothes Bin® might be a great choice for you. Clothing franchise opportunities are a great investment option if you’re looking to purchase an affordable franchise that’s simple to manage.
You don’t need previous sales experience, and it’s as easy as placing your Bins in strategic locations so your customers can conveniently drop off their contributions to be recycled. Clothes Bin® makes it easy to get started, and our semi-absentee franchise model offers collection, management and distribution of recycled clothing and shoes.
If you’re passionate about the environment, then a Clothes Bin® franchise is a great choice. Clothing, shoes and textiles are significant contributors to waste, with many people unaware that these items can be recycled. Choosing the right location for your Bin with high visibility is essential to attract customers and raise awareness of the benefits of recycling. And the best part is that as soon as your Bin is placed in your desired location, it will get to work.
Be Part of a Growing Market: The Textile Recycling Industry
Every year in the United States, more than 17 million tons of used textile waste is generated—which has doubled in the last 20 years. A small percentage of this is recycled, with the majority going to landfills. Another issue is that many clothing today uses synthetic fabrics, as it’s a cheaper alternative to more natural products.
Synthetic materials can take between 20 to 200 years to break down, creating vast volumes of waste on our planet. Further, the average consumer purchases 60% more clothing items than people did 15 years ago. In addition, the clothing lasts about half the time as it did in previous generations. As a result, we are creating more and more waste and significantly contributing to overflowing landfills.
Recycling clothing, shoes, and other textiles can positively impact our environment. While there are many options for recycling other household items, recycling textiles is a relatively new concept and can significantly reduce solid waste. As a franchise owner of Clothes Bin®, you’ll be actively working towards reducing our carbon footprint.
