Re: [greenyes] textile recycling


Dear Sharon:

Nornally I like using search engines to find information on the Net. But
this is one situation where using subject directories may be worth trying.
The following are textile recycling company listings in various reputable
search directories - you will note that there is a high degree of overlap.
This is because, unlike search engines, subject directories are built on
manual URL submissions. These are companies that want to be found and
contacted. Good luck!

I also found this nifty little resource for information on different textile
grades and that you might find helpful:
