Did you know 23.8 billion pounds of used clothing is put into U.S. landfills each year?
Reduce waste and support the less fortunate in your community by donated your used clothing to a thrift store or a local homeless shelter. And remember the age-old saying, "One person's trash is another person's treasure."
Adults can organize a clothing drive at your work and invite coworkers to bring their used clothing. Make it easy for others by offering to take the donations to a thrift store or shelter.
Kids can organize a clothing drive at their school. Send notes home with your classmates, asking them to bring in clothing they have outgrown. Then have a parent or teacher arrange for the clothing to be donated.
Go through your closet, and instead of throwing away items you donвЂ™t need anymore, donate them. Many organizations make it easy for you, by offering services to pick up used clothing from your house.
