how long does it take for clothing to decompose in a landfill?

    The material of the clothing has a huge impact on its decomposition rate. Synthetic materials such as polyester and vinyl will never decompose in a landfill, while clothing made of hemp, cotton, or other organic materials can decompose relatively quickly. According to the first link below, cotton diapers decompose within about six months in a landfill, but it is likely that other artcles of clothing will take longer.
