Spring Textile Recycling Drive

April 21 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free
A free textile recylcing drive!

We encourage you to bring donations in compostable bags such as these. Our community receives 15% off their order here with code MSL

If you would prefer to purchase a couple of them in person Modern Saint Living will be at Earth Fest on 4/20 with bags (for $2) for purchase or the day of the event. Thanks for helping to reduce plastic waste. 

Did you know Americans alone send 10 million tons of clothing to the dump each year?

Donate your unwanted textiles so they can be recycled into new products.

Modern Saint Living has been running this event in CT for 6 years and to date have saved 8,483 lbs from the landfill. We are so excited to be offering this in Keene, NH by partnering with Collection Helpsy.
