    Chapter Meeting

    October 2, 2017


    Organizing for the 
    Clothing Lifestyle

    Presented by Kaveri Marathe


    NAPO organizers help thousands of people across the United States to declutter and organize their personal and professional spaces, and lives, every year. During that process, many clients end up disposing of, sometimes large volumes, of old clothing. This clothing may end up going to charities, like the Salvation Army and Goodwill, thrift stores, or the trash. 

    Clothing going in the trash is a growing problem, especially in the U.S. Americans throw away on average 70-80 pounds of clothing a year. While natural fibers, like cotton and wool, biodegrade quickly, other materials, like polyester, spandex, and acrylic, biodegrade very slowly, and release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as they do. This program will discuss 

    • Current options for consumer clothing disposal
    • Drivers of consumer clothing trends
    • Used clothing market overview
    • Recycling of textiles

    Kaveri Marathe is the founder of Texiles, a startup dedicated to ending the burden of clothing waste on American landfills through textile recycling. Texiles is a door-to-door used clothing pickup service which encourages customers to donate their waste clothing–garments they would otherwise throw in the trash–alongside their other undesired old clothes to be responsibly managed.
