Donations – Uniform and Military Surplus
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 2.25 million tons of textiles were recycled in 2012 – this avoided annual greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 1.2 million cars on the road for one year.
Five good reasons to recycle
- Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources
- Recycling saves energy
- Recycling promotes clean air and water
- Recycling saves landfill space
- Recycling can save money and create jobs
Amor Umbrella would like to launch a Military Gear and Uniform Surplus Donation program that will allow us to recycle uniforms and other military surplus materials and incorporate the material into the production of our Special Limited Edition Saluting the Military Designs.
You can be part of the Solution by giving these Military Gear and Uniform Surplus Donation for reuse or recycling / Up-cycling instead of throwing them away.
As part of the program, our donors will also be able to share their legacy by submitting a short biography of their military service or of a family member’s military service to be posted on our website and newsletter.
All uniform donors will also receive 10% OFF their next Amor Umbrella purchase!
The only Uniforms that you should NOT donate are items that are wet, mildewed, or contaminated with hazardous material.
