We were astonished to read how much clothing - just in the United States - ends up in landfills each year. Let’s Keep Clothing Out of our Landfills While M&S is not the first clothing retailer to encourage recycling old clothing (Patagonia, for example, has long been making and selling its own reclaimed clothing for years), the more high profile retailers that get involved, the better or not. Smaller charity shops could miss out on donations.
We all know that we should eliminate waste, but is this “green”? Maybe we should buy less, better quality, take care of them, and then this way we can keep them longer.
