How to Discard Old Clothes Responsibly in 2021

 

The fashion industry has a catastrophic impact on the environment. The way we produce and consume clothing today isn't sustainable or ethical. Post-industrial and post-consumer textile wastes are piling up in landfills at an alarming rate. 

 

Buying fewer clothes and higher quality is one of the best ways to be a more conscious fashion consumer. We can also take better care of the garments we already own, reuse, repair, repurpose, recycle, and upcycle used clothing. 

 

It's now more important than ever to take massive action to reduce the amount of pollution and waste we create globally each year. Our wardrobe has a huge impact on the planet, people, and animals living on it. We must be more sustainable with clothes overall. 

 

I have compiled a few guides, tips and tricks, articles, and contributions below that sum up some simple yet very effective actions we can take as consumers to protect the environment. Be sure to check them out!
