5 simple (and 1 crazy) ways to be greener with your wardrobe

1. Pass on your old clothes to someone else before donating them to thrift stores. Only a small percentage of donated garments are actually repurchased in the U.S.

2. Don't throw out any textile, even a stray sock. If the item is donated it is much more likely to get to a textile recycler.

3. Have a clothing exchange. Donate whatever people don't want.

4.  Repair it and wear it

5. Rent special occasion garments.

6. Form a group to share clothes. With just one other person both of you could potentially double your wardrobe. (crazy but clever)
