What happens to your garments once they’re deposited into landfills?
It actually causes harmful side-effects. As they decompose they release methane, a harmful greenhouse gas and a significant contributor to global warming. Also, dyes and other chemicals can leach into the soil, contaminating surface and groundwater, further harming human and wildlife.
It’s only a matter of time before recycling garments becomes mandatory.
