Clothing and textiles
Includes clothing, fabric and other textile goods.
Clothing in good condition can be reused by selling, donated to a charity or gifted to family, friend or neighbour.
'Fast fashion' is not made to endure multiple wearing and washing over the years. It may be cheaper initially, but will it stand the test of time. Good quality clothing can save you money over a number of years, and still be in good condition to sell or gift as a pre-loved item.
