Did you Know? Clothes can take up to 40 years to get decomposed.
When we throw away our clothes, we accept that we will never see them again. However, just because our old clothes are no longer in our possession doesn't mean they've vanished. While some materials decompose more slowly than others, they all have negative environmental consequences. In addition to emitting gases such as methane, most fabrics contain dyes and chemicals that can contaminate the soil and groundwater.
