Mission

Planet Aid’s mission is to inform, mobilize, and inspire individuals and communities to work together to bring about worldwide environmental and social progress.

We collect and recycle textiles to protect the environment, reduce waste, and increase the efficient use of vital resources.  The proceeds from our clothes collection go toward funding sustainable development projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

We embrace the principles of equality and self-determination in all that we do and foster cooperation and understanding among peoples across the planet.  Disadvantaged populations are our priority, and we seek to empower them to create lasting positive change.
