All the clothing Collected by Community Recycling Initiative is exported from Ireland. After extensive research we have developed strong business partnerships with several companies based in Eastern Europe. All our clothing sent here where it is processed and sold in second and clothing shops. Creating mini enterprises in these developing areas.
