Get a load of this fantastic organization: TRAID is a charity working to "make the nations unwanted clothes matter." At One Mango Tree, we appreciate people who are smart and creative in ways that are not only sustainable... but also generous. At TRaid, they set up recycling banks all over the UK and they collect clothing; after sorting, they resell the best in their shops with the goal of giving away the profits. They've funded over 3 million dollars in the past ten years for international projects fighting inequality and exploitation in the global textile supply chain. Their hope is to establish environmental sustainability in some of the world's poorest communities. The creativity and resourcefulness at work here is just phenomenal.

And in case you were wondering, 'TRaid' stands for Textile Recyling for Aid and International Developing. We encourage you to take a look at the specific projects TRaid is supporting. Giving truly changes everything... but we must be intentional and do our research if we want our giving to truly impact lives in a sustainable manner.
