You may not have noticed but when you go to H&M, Puma, Kappahl or Levi’s etc you can leave cloths you don’t need and get paid for it! At the same time you will do our environment a favour. The cloths will get recycled. This is one way of re-using the cotton once again instead of producing more. One kilo of cotton require more than 29 000 litre of water and is therefore a threat to sustainability. Only 0,1% of all textiles will get recycled today which is a terrible number.
If you don’t want to recycle your cloths sell them instead on second hand for others to wear your old treasures!
