According to a recent news release from Blend, Denton’s “Wasted Thread” is “a collaborative, community-based recycling art project.” People in the Nashville area and even surrounding states have been encouraged to participate by donating old clothing and fabrics. The show is designed to raise awareness of the need for textile recycling, something that is often forgotten in the rush to recycle plastic, glass, aluminum and other materials.
The release points out that some items of clothing that are too old or worn to donate to a charity or to your local thrift store may still contain usable fabric.
