      Good information, I believe in trying to find ways in our lifestyle to support a more eco-friendly way to live. It is important for our environment and so clothes is one of the ways we can try to do that. I shop a lot at consignment stores and thrift stores to recycle old clothing. I alter clothes I buy second-hand or my own clothes that are out of date and try to make it new and fresh again. Helpful article!
