Mi Recycle Blanket

I wrote a blog last April 5th when I first started my business “Mi Recycled Blanket” and thought I would bring it back today incase you did not read it and Spring is not to far away so perhaps when the spring cleaning bug strikes you may keep me in mind.

I hope you find it interesting and if anything maybe get you thinking on what can be done for those in our society that seem to be over looked.

I think we have all heard of the company “TOMS”. They are a company that saw a need and did something. I always had great respect for this business concept. With this in mind I have been making blankets out of recycled material giving them away and enjoying helping keep others warm.
I see all the hurting and cold people who seem to be forgotten. My heart was compelled to do something, so I came up with this idea of taking old sweaters that will end up in a landfill or a thrift store and refurbishing them into blankets that are sold. I sell one and give one away every time.
Instead of having sweaters just sit in the closet or storage because you don’t know what to do with them. I take the sweaters of you or your loved ones, whether out grown, out used or perhaps even of loved ones that pass away.
I make a blanket for you to keep in place of the sweaters clogging up your closet or I take the donated sweaters to make a blanket to give away.
My prices are fair and I enjoy doing this for you. Keep in mind at the same time I make a blanket out of your sweater I make one out of sweaters that have been donated so I can give them away to someone in need.
I ask you to think when you do your spring cleaning. If you have sweaters that you would like to donate or would like to pay me to turn them into a blanket keep me in mind not only does this clear out the clutter but will help someone less fortunate than you.
“Mi Recycled Blanket” is the name of my new business and no it is not miss spelled but it’s named after my grandson Milo who helped inspired me.
My motto for this business
“Give unto them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for morning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness,”
Isaiah 61: 3a
