Sortworthy is celebrating Earth Month from April 10-30 by partnering with Swire Properties and holding a textile and shoe recycling drive at the Brickell City Centre.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL, UNITED STATES, April 10, 2023 -- Sortworthy, a startup focused on zero waste, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Swire Properties in Miami to offer a collection drive of unwanted clothes and shoes during Earth Month. From April 10 to April 30, Swire Properties is holding a textile and shoe recycling drive at the Brickell City Centre. Visitors of the Brickell City Centre are encouraged to help reduce textile and shoe waste by bringing unwanted and gently worn items.

 

The recycling box is on Level 2, next to the Concierge at Brickell City Centre. A list of accepted items includes:

 

CLOTHING

Tops (T-Shirts, Blouses, Tank Tops, Polos, Dress Shirts), Sweaters, Sweatshirts, Outerwear (Jackets, Coats), Dresses, Bottoms (Pants, Slacks, Jeans, Sweatpants, Skirts), Athletic Wear, Suits, Scrubs, Pajamas, Intimates (Underwear, socks), Baby Clothing.

Textile waste is a significant contributor of waste to the environment. The textile industry utilizes non-renewable resources yearly to produce millions of pounds of material. Textile manufacturers often use non-renewable resources to make synthetic fibers, chemicals that have dye, and fertilizer used to grow cotton. The recycling drive at Brickell City Centre, with a conveniently located recycling box, will make it easier for residents in Miami to discard unwanted clothes and shoes, divert waste from landfill and close the loop on production.
