Deliver Your News to the World Supports Earth Day by Offering Recycling Opportunities


New York - March 2009. As Earth Day approaches on April 22, largest and most established eBay alternative, is encouraging members to clear out their closets and recycle unwanted clothes via its site to hundreds of thousands of eager buyers of second hand items.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, landfills in the United States receive about 20 billion pounds of old clothing each year, nearly all of which should be reused or recycled instead.

As a dedicated person to person auction site, eBid’s garage-sale business model, where one man’s trash is another’s treasure, actively supports and enables recycling. eBid sells tens of thousands of second hand clothing items each year. With over 2.4m listings across 9,000 categories, a vibrant international buying and selling membership base in 18 territories across the US and Canada, UK, Africa, Asia and Australasia, unlimited free listings and low or zero sales fees, makes it easy to recycle and turn unwanted clothes into cash.

eBid co-founder, Mark Wilkinson says that he’s proud to head a business that provides a simple route for people to recycle. He says: “Whatever businesses can do to support the planet we must ensure that we make it a priority and I believe that by reducing the amount of clothes dumped into landfills each year is a great step.”
