Clothes go in the TRASH..
Clothes are an essential part of life; we dress warm in the winter and wear light clothing in the hot summer, and everyone has their own choices for clothing. Clothes can help express who people are and/or their ambitions or hobbies. Many people also wear costumes on occasions such as Halloween and it's always fun to see what another person might be wearing. But sadly, clothes don't go in the recycling or compost, and they usually end up going into the trash.
Let's change the landfills filled with clothes
If you are a younger sibling, you may have had to wear an older siblings piece of clothing. This is a great way to keep clothing from going to landfills, because we are reusing it again and again. When the clothes get to small to go to anyone else, you can donate it to a shelter such as Goodwill, who will take it and give it to children in need. What could be better than keeping it from going in the landfill AND giving it to someone who needs it? We can recycle and reuse this clothing, and less and less will end up in the landfills.
