Clothes Bin® is SBA-approved

Why Textile Recycling?

Opportunity is piling up. Every year, 85% of textile waste unnecessarily ends up in landfills, which equates to an astounding 17 BILLION POUNDS polluting our earth. Lack of convenience is the major driving force behind this unfortunate trend. There is pent-up consumer demand for green solutions in textile recycling, which Clothes Bin® is happy to provide.


There are many avenues to secure financing so you can own a franchise. Clothes Bin® is SBA-approved, so you may seek a Small Business Association loan or financing. Other possibilities include 401k rollovers, home equity line of credit, equipment financing, and third-party loans.
