weekly simple eco tip, 5.22

While Abercrombie and Fitch has recently made news regarding destroying its clothing, it's not the first company to have done so. In the past few years, H&M and WalMart have been found to destroy unsold clothing.

So while some companies destroy their unsold clothing in a ridiculous attempt at "brand integrity", you can still help out the less fortunate and help them have clothing to wear at all.

Donate your unwanted or no-longer-fitting clothing to charity, from a local coat drive to Goodwill to Salvation Army. Clothing being worn by someone's idea of the "ideal consumer" is much less important than everyone having clothing to wear. At the end of the day, a piece of clothing is a piece of clothing, no matter what label it has.

Unless your old clothes are already destroyed, they will still be valued by people who don't have much, so why not donate and keep the cycle going? After all, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Don't destroy their treasure!
