Earth Ministry

baystateWCC now has a recycling bin for used textiles in the parking lot behind Pilgrim Hall.  Please support the church and the community by placing your unwanted textiles in the box.  This is not like Goodwill, as we will take them in any condition.  These are collected and recycled by Bay States Textiles.  They are either mended and sold to third world countries, turned into wiping cloths, or made into filler material.  This reduces the amount of waste going into our landfills.  They need to be put in plastic bags before putting them in the box.  Click here for a list of acceptable items.
