Textile Recycling Helps Ontario's Hungry and Homeless

Name: Daniela

What is your job? Director of Business Development for www.TextileWasteDiversion.com

What social causes are most important to you? I have several from poverty eradication, resource economics, waste reduction, end of Prohibition, and police and citizen relations.

What charity do you support – and how? The Canadian Community Support Foundation.  I started with them by serving on the board of directors but then decided to take a job with the recycling company they use for their textile recycling fundraising, and devote most of my career to expanding on the ways that they can fundraise through textile recycling. I just recently spearheaded an expansion that provides multiunit residential properties like apartment buildings a free recycling service that benefits CCSF. I have also done a lot in the industry to raise operating standards.
