Guys, what do you do with old clothes that don't fit??post #1 of 96/24/10 at 6:35amThread Starter
This social organization recycles peoples discarded, donated clothes and forwards them to poor people. Also, it makes sanitary napkins out of torn scraps and stuff to be able to get sanitized options to poor women.post #2 of 98/23/10 at 3:46pm
Occasionally I become resigned to the fact that I'm never going to lose a lot of weight so I clean out all the stuff in my closet that is now too small and donate it to our local Salvation Army store. They operate a thrift shop and the money is used to help the homeless in my community. That seems a worthwhile charity to me.post #3 of 98/24/10 at 5:40pmpost #4 of 91/9/11 at 9:12pm
I've kept some of my old clothes that I love the most in hope of losing a couple of sizes one day but the rest I'm giving to salvation army. I have this philosophy of not buying junk clothes and to spend some money on the quality and instead use them up to the last seconds of their natural life. Remember that the energy consumed and Green House Gases which is being produced for a high quality cloth is equal to (or even less than) a low quality junk Chinese cloth or similar so if you want to be sustainable, consume less and spend more on quality and style. Less waste generation is always better than recycling. Read more on embedded energy here.post #5 of 92/9/11 at 4:46am
My first option is to donate them to Salvation army as well..Otherwise, I look for a local charity that gives them to poor people & children. Oxfam is an example.
If you are looking to get some money out of this you could try selling them on eBay but donating them would make you feel much betterpost #6 of 98/25/11 at 9:54ampost #7 of 99/15/11 at 12:22pm
I give my clothes away to the salvation army or a similar organization. I recently came across some stuff online though on some DIY blogs where people are actually taking their old clothes and modifying them. For example a woman took her husbands worn out looking pull over sweater and turned it into a really great and stylish cardigan for herself. There is so much we can do to re-purpose old clothing!post #8 of 98/1/12 at 2:13pmpost #9 of 93/7/13 at 12:44pm
I dont know about America but in the UK old clothes are a now a valuable commodity.
Charities use to leave labelled bags with you so you could fill them with your old clothes & fabrics and then you would leave them outside on your driveway and the charity would pick them up, perhaps once a week. Now if you leave such a charity bag outside your door more than likely some chancer chav types will have made off with it before the charity even turns up at your street.
