Things we like: more ways your old clothes can be something special
Donate them to an organization supporting people in need.
There are lots of NGOs all over Europe that collect clothes and shoes and give them to people who need them. Many of these NGOs work together with textile recycling companies, so even if your clothes are deemed “really past their expiration date”, they are still being useful.
Support research by sending them to Fashion for Good.
By sending your old Cradle to Cradle Certified™ clothes to Fashion for Good, you can support the research and development of new chemical recycling techniques. Just post them to: Fashion for Good Centre, Rokin 102, 1012 KZ Amsterdam NETHERLANDS.
Compost them at home.
Some of our Cradle to Cradle Gold or Platinum Level Certified™ pieces can even be composted – just throw them on your compost heap. Let them become humus. Use that humus to grow salad. Enjoy eating the salad that literally grew out of your pants.
