 I just put in an order to get a bag sent to me in which to ship my no-longer-loved-as-much clothes to ThredUP, for which I will hopefully be given a small allowance, and which others browsing the site can then buy! And any clothes they don't think are fashionable enough (none of mine, obviously) will be donated. Not too shabby, eh? There are lots of other ways to not let your clothes go to waste! DID YOU KNOW that equivalent tonnages of glass and textiles are disposed of as waste in the U.S. annually, but approximately double the percentage of glass is recycled as that of textiles?? Who knew. We did. Booyah.
