How to breath new life into old clothes

Most people have piles and piles of old and unloved clothes lying around at home, either in the attic or still lurking in your wardrobe. There are so many reasons you might discard of an item of clothing; wrong size, too old, no longer like the style - many items may even still have the tag in!

Less than 15% of all textiles produced in the US is recycled or donated each year, according to the EPA and the Council for Textile Recycling. With a staggering 85% being thrown out in the trash!

For those who like to do their bit for the planet, there are ways to breath new life into old clothes and recycle old clothes responsibly. Here's how you can reuse old clothing:

Sell It!
Clothing that is in good condition could earn you a little extra cash. When you multiply that by the amount of clothing you have to sell, you might find it well worth your while! Take decent photographs and list them on auction sites, just make sure you include the price of postage.
