Recycling Used Clothes

Did you know that used clothes from Western and other “developed” countries end up in India where they are “reclaimed” and given a new life and form? I was aware that used clothes are frequently sent to disaster-affected regions and help out those affected. The video at the link below was an eye opener for me! I was not aware that used clothes recycling is big business giving employment to so many people in India.

I cannot help but wonder whether a more consciousness life style in the developed world just with respect to clothing can help the global environment in a significant way!
