[greenyes] Textiles


Sharon:

Try the secondary materials and recycled textiles association (smart), they
may have some ideas. There are some companies that make oil spill
containment booms, absorbent products, wiping clothes, shoddy, and other
products from scrap textiles. There may be someone in your area who does
this. http://www.smartasn.org/
