This season’s hottest trend is sustainable clothing

by The 100 Companies

In the last 20 years, the amount of clothing that Americans throw away has doubled from seven to 14 million tons.

Throwing clothes directly into the trash not only wastes money and resources but can take 200+ years to decompose in a landfill, thus affecting the environment. Many brand-new returns also end up in landfills, and it’s estimated that five billion pounds of waste come from returned clothing and shoes.

Fast fashion is an additional factor that’s led to overproduction and excess waste. Instead of tossing clothes, donate them to an Atlanta thrift shop, like The Clothing Warehouse or Rag-O-Rama
