Billions of pounds worth of wearable clothes and other textiles could be saved from landfill each year if we all reused more and wasted less, according to Oxfam and the Recycle Now campaign, launching this year’s Recycle Week, which runs from 22-28 June.

A new poll conducted by Recycle Now reveals only 39 per cent of consumers consider the environmental impact of throwing clothes away and yet 63 per cent2 of our clothing is going to landfill where some of it will biodegrade in airless conditions to form methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.
