Every year, more than 80 billion articles of clothing are produced around the world, and more than 15 million tons of used textile waste is generated each year by the just United States alone. In 2014, 16.2 million tons of textile waste was generated, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Of this amount, 2.62 million tons were recycled, 3.14 million tons were combusted for energy recovery, and 10.46 million tons were sent to the landfill.
It may seem harmless to throw out unwanted clothes, these clothes are likely to then end up in landfills, where they pile up to produce toxic greenhouse gasses that are emitted into the atmosphere. As a leading cause of global warming, these gases are very dangerous for our environment and for our health as well. One interesting fact is that 95% percent of used clothes are recyclable and 5% is unusable due to contamination effects.
