What is tropical mix?
Tropical Mix is a combination of men’s, women’s and children’s used clothing presorted specifically for tropical climate countries. Tropical Mix consists only of lightweight summer clothes appropriate for hot climates. Items that are not part of the mix include: sweatshirts, heavy jogging pants, long sleeve t-shirts and clothing made out of heavy woven (sweater) or corduroy material. It also does not include torn, worn out, discolored, faded nor out-of-shape clothing.
In addition to clothing, ‘Household Rummage’ is also included in Tropical Mix. Household Rummage’ consists mainly of bed sheets and towels. Tropical Mix from the U.S. or Canada is packed in large bales, approximately 1,000 lbs each.
