Green Your Autumn: Recycle Summer's Gear

Donateshoesthisautumn The Autumnal Equinox upon us, so this week's tips are about how to make sure your eco-habits don't shift with the season. 

Tip #1: Recycle Summery Clothes and Shoes

Fall is in the air, but your summer clothes don't have to go in the trash. Before discarding those lived-in Bermuda shorts, think about recycling. Every year, millions of pounds of textiles are tossed into U.S. landfills. Instead, donate your duds to USAgain.

And if your trusty hiking boots are worn out from hitting the trails this summer, you can donate those to Soles4Souls, which has distributed more than 10 million pairs of used shoes to people in need all over the world.

Tell us: How will you recycle your summer clothes and shoes?
