How To Cut Back On Your Clothing Waste With Clearabee Rubbish Removal


Research shows that £140 billion worth of clothing in the UK goes into a landfill every year. Textile waste accounts for a significant portion of our overall waste. What can you do to help the environment, and cut down on your waste at home? Follow these tips to save yourself money, and do your bit to help the environment!

1. Learn How To Upcycle
It’s amazing how you can breath new life into old clothes. If you’ve got a t-shirt you’re tired of or a dress that needs an upgrade, and you’re handy with a sewing machine, upcycling old clothes might be the way to keep them out of the landfill a little longer. Experiment with adding patches and fringes, or swapping out buttons, if you’re less than handy at DIY. If you’re more advanced, you can really change up your look. Turn a t-shirt into a bag, a pair of jeans into a crop-top, and more! Spend some time in the online craft world, and you’d be amazed at the riches you can find in your rubbish!

2. Organize your Closet
Cleaning out your closet allows you to take stock of everything you have, and get rid of everything you know you won’t need. It can help you sort through what you’ve stretched out, what needs to be replaced, and that great top you thought you’d lost ages ago! Before calling the rubbish removal company, sort through those overstuffed closets, and put yourself on a clothing diet. Make a commitment to stop spending money on clothes you won’t or can’t wear.

3. Clothing Swaps
Clothing swaps are a good way to avoid buying more clothes, and a great way to donate clothing you won’t use anymore. Arrange swaps with friends and neighbors to trade up your wardrobe, and help you get rid of things you don’t need.

4. Donate
If you can’t upcycle, and you can’t swap it out, contact your local donation bins and charity shops. They are always looking for well-cared-for used items, and it’s a great way to give back to your community. Take the opportunity to do a major spring cleaning, and don’t forget to check with your rubbish removal company about donation drop-offs.

5. Use Eco-Friendly Rubbish Removal
Finally, if you really can’t find a better way to get rid of unwanted clothes, look into your rubbish removal company before you hire one. Clearabee prides itself on using eco-friendly trucks and services, safely disposing of waste, and recycling most of your rubbish. Look into your options for a cleaner, greener removal service, so you can make a deliberate decision when you need to toss it!

Clothing, textile waste, and the manufacturing of clothes has a huge impact on your carbon footprint. Research shows that the average household wastes about 4,000 per year in unused clothes. Clearing out the clutter, upcycling, and using eco-friendly rubbish removal services, are great ways to help you and your family stay green, while also helping you save money.
