Convenience often comes at the expense of the environment...

Clothing and Textiles

From the too-big T-shirt handed out at a charity event to threadbare sheets and towels, the average American will throw away 70 pounds of clothing and textiles per year. Despite this amount of waste, only 15 percent gets donated or recycled, according to the EPA. Donating clothing to Goodwill or the Salvation Army or taking torn and damaged items to recycling centers can help reduce textile waste.
