RECYCLE/RESELL

We encourage you to give your clothes another life by recycling or reselling them. This keeps clothes out of landfills, which reduces fashion waste and helps heal our planet. 

RECYCLE YOUR CLOTHES

What is Textile recycling?

It is the process by which old clothing is reprocessed into reusable textile material which can be used to make new clothing.

How does this heal our planet?

Textile recycling decreases fashion waste in landfills, decreases the use of new materials, reduces the consumption of energy, reduces the use of water and reduces the use of toxic dyes.

How does textile recycling work?

Textiles are pulled into fibers or shredded (sometimes introducing other fibers into the yarn). Next, the yarn is cleaned and mixed through carding, which is when textiles are separated and impurities are removed. Finally, the yarn is re-spun and ready for reuse to make new clothing. Note polyester textiles are shredded and granulated for processing into polyester chips. Next, they are melted and used to create new fibers for use in new clothes.

RESELL YOUR CLOTHES

What is clothing resale?

Clothing resale is selling unwanted clothing so someone else can use it.

How do I resell my clothes?

You can resell your clothes via online resellers such as The Real Real and Poshmark, or in person to vintage or thrift stores.

How does this heal our planet?

Clothing resale decreases fashion waste in landfills, decreases the use of new materials, reduces the consumption of energy, reduces the use of water, reduces the use of toxic dyes, and reduces carbon emissions.

Don't want to go through the resale process?

You can always donate your unwanted clothing to places such as goodwill or women's shelters.
