Clothing Waste In America Keeps Growing To 10 Million Tons

Now’s the time to start using FabSwapp!

It’s incredible how much clothes are going into landfills every year. It is a fact that Americans will send 10.5 million tons of clothing to land fills in 2016 and it’s only going to get worse. And now Americans are buying five times as much clothes as they did in 1980 and pretty soon with the growing population the waste numbers will increase. The US yearly population is estimated to grow at 0.73% and that will mean even more clothes will be purchased and then thrown away into landfills. Did you know that in New York City alone that clothes that people throw away account for six percent of all the garbage that is thrown into the landfills? This means that textiles are one of the worst contributors of garbage and it doesn’t need to be that way. Things like handbags, purses, dresses, kids clothing that are still good or baby clothes that can easily be swapped, but they out grew out of them as kids do very quickly. Even quality men’s clothes are thrown away and they could be swapped for other clothes or given away and re-used.
