Donate to help stop clothing waste

One-third of all clothing is trash as soon as it’s made — bound for the landfill or incinerator without ever being worn. This is a major reason why textile waste is the fastest-growing waste stream in the United States.

Convincing Forever 21 and other companies to become leaders in the industry by publicly committing to not trashing or burning unsold clothes would make a big difference. But it takes research, advocacy and grassroots action — and that takes resources. Will you donate today?
