Provision of jobs for people with disabilities and recycling textiles, specifically old clothes.

My mother is a disabled person and cannot be employed due to her disability. Using her valuable experience, we decided to start a social business so that we could provide jobs for other vulnerable people.  I’m concerned about the environment and try to find as many ideas as possible to protect the natural world. Our business reuses clothes for agricultural purposes; this gives them a second life instead of filling up landfill dumps.
