Cash For Clothes
It is a little known fact that more than one million tonnes of textiles are tossed away annually as rubbish, the majority of which comes from domestic sources. In fact, clothing, footwear and similar textiles comprise about 12 per cent of the rubbish in landfills in the UK alone.
A minute portion of approximately one quarter of that total are recycled. By taking old and lightly used clothing from the homes of consumers and delivering it to third-world countries, Cash For Clothes prevents further pollution of the environment, preserves invaluable resources and provides essential basic clothing for people all over the world.
How Does Cash For Clothes Help the Environment?
Many of the materials that comprise our clothing are synthetic in nature. These man-made fibers include spandex, rayon, polyester, acrylic, carbon fiber and nylon. These incredibly common materials are inherently resistant to the forces of natural decomposition, meaning that they may remain within a given landfill for hundreds of years. Even natural fibers look wool, which do decompose, pose a threat to the environment if tossed out and left to sit in a landfill. As wool decomposes, it produces and releases the gas known as methane. Methane is connected with the gradual warming of the environment in general and should be kept out of landfills at all cost.
