350,000 tonnes, that’s around £140 million worth of used but still wearable clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year
We Great Britons send 700,000 tonnes of clothing to recycling centres, textile banks, clothes collections and to charity each year. That’s enough to fill 459 Olympic-size swimming pools.
We have to stop this wastefulness and start taking care of our clothes better.
You can create a positive impact on the environment by simply wearing your clothes for longer or by buying used clothing, rather than new ones.
It requires around 2400 – 3000 litres of water to create just one t-shirt or a pair of jeans but by using it for just 9 months longer or through buying used, you can reduce the environmental impact by at least 30%.
Lots of small changes can create a huge impact.
