Hello AT,

I have a bunch of unmatched socks and some ratty towels that I want to dispose of. They are obviously useless to Salvation Army, etc, but I hate throwing out something that could be recycled. Lately I've been hearing about insulation and things made from recycled cotton.

Anyone know of a place I could dispose of these used items in a green friendly matter?

Thanks. Alex

Dear Alex,

We totally know how you feel. Every time we "throw out" an old pair of socks or underwear, it feels like a strange waste and misuuse of the recycling cycle.

We found this great link to www.recyclethis.co.uk.

There are places that collect up fabric like this and turn them into rags.

Does anyone know more or have a real answer?
