Who we are
We are ACT; Africa Collect Textiles. We collect and recycle used textiles and textile waste. Our efforts are currently focused on Africa, the motherland. She is a nurturing, loving, and caring provider and we recognize she deserves better. Our efforts are aimed towards finding a solution to end the textile waste mountain that is causing harm to our environment and people. ACT is composed of ordinary people with extraordinary ideas on how to divert textiles from landfills. We enable a circular economy for textiles, whereby we lower the footprint of the fashion industry while creating jobs in the collection, sorting, and recycling, offering free and affordable clothing to underprivileged communities, and supporting charity.
