Repurpose or upcycle
If you’ve decided that you’ve got all you can out of an item of clothing, there are still things you can do before sending them to landfill. Firstly, can it be repurposed? Repurposing and upcycling has become very popular recently, and with good reason, it can give neglected clothes a new lease of life. So whether it’s turning an old pair of jeans into shorts for the summer season, there are plenty of ways to repurpose clothes. If you’ve exhausted all your options and simply want to free up a bit of space in your wardrobe, it’s best to do so in a way that will prevent the clothes ending up in landfill. For big ticket items, there’s real money to be made on resale websites or apps. Failing that, do your research about the best places to donate to or even ask around friends and family to see if they’d be interested in maybe swapping items.
