DID YOU KNOW
How much brand new clothing is going to waste (landfill). Most of us are aware that there is too much used clothing, causing a problem, but did you know that the same applies to brand new clothing also?
The cost to the environment of producing clothes is simply massive. The options available for unsold stock are limited:
THE BEST OPTION
Is to simply buy the clothing that has already been made.
The industry is moving fast towards using recycled textiles, but that involves more energy waste so the best solution is to use what exists without any further destruction.
With such unpredictable weather in the UK, seasonal fashion that is forecast to sell within certain months, often doesn't. Whilst retailers need to keep reviving their store or online storefront by refreshing their stock, and make room for new arrivals.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
There are a host of reasons why perfectly good clothing stock doesn't sell.
Sometimes over ordered, or perhaps they were made in a different factory and the colour wasn't precisely the same as the existing range, or the product code was inconsistent with a previous batch or sometimes there are loose threads on a few so the entire batch is rejected ... whatever the reason, a huge amount of perfect quality brand new fashion will find its way to landfilll.
