Recycling clothes is something we all should be doing. Thrown away fabric (clothing, other textiles) accounts for about 4% of the weight and 8% of the volume of landfills. One interesting thing is that clothing that is made out of 100% cotton, wool, or leather can be composted. Also, the Salvation Army and the Good Will will accept even your most raggedy fabric pieses… they are able to send them to rag manufacturers.
Check out some more ways at Alt Use, a website that takes everyday house hold items and lists alternative uses in order to save resources and money. Clothes have a variety of other uses, so take a look.
If your clothes are still in good shape, you can try to consign them. A consignment store is like a thrift store except that if your garment sells, they pay you a percentage of the selling price. Unless you are consigning vintage Dior, you probably won’t get much money but it’s a nice bonus if you’re getting rid of the clothes anyway. Consignment shops are much stricter about what they accept so make sure the clothes are clean, ironed, etc.
