KEEPS ENVIRONMENT SAFE
Production of clothes is causing environmental degradation which is a major concern in society. A lot of clothing is made from natural resources which mean it’s organic and biodegradable. However, when clothing ends up in a landfill, there it lacks oxygen to decompose and releases methane and carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere. These gases escape into the atmosphere and cause holistic climate change over the years. It also takes hundreds of years for natural fiber to decompose. Also, synthetic clothes do not decompose at all.
Instead of throwing them away one can always reuse and recycle them in order to save the earth from greenhouse gases and create a better, environment-friendly world for generations to come.
