Re: [GreenYes] Re:info on U'SAgain Clothes Collection System
Dear Susan:

I did a quick Web search and came up with this Website:

http://www.tvindalert.org.uk/

I cannot vouch for the information integrity of this Website but it may be a
useful starting point with regard to further research on U'SAgain.  Frankly,
it has got me a little concerned since one of the enterprises mentioned on
this site is Planet Aid, which has used clothing collection boxes in my
area.  My sense is that the clothing recycling / reuse universe is not that
large so it may be pay to contact the Secondary Materials and Recycled
Textile Association (SMART) at:

http://www.smartasn.org/

to see if 1) this company is a member in good standing and 2) if SMART knows
anything about U'SAgain or the allegations mentioned on the tvindalert site.
