What can be a good disposal plan for aging garments in stores?

    I would recommend looking into textile recycling near the store. The Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association out of Bethesda, Maryland, might be a good place to start your research. The textiles are exported to countries in need of clothing, are repurposed into new textiles, and a small percentage do end up in the landfill.

    In conjunction with textile recycling, I would also like to see less clothing being produced in general. I think a combination of more textile recycling and less production will lessen the amount of textiles entering the annual solid waste stream.
