In other news, Treehugger.com has a story on a new recycling method by Reformation, a clothing company. It is
making it super easy for you to recycle your old clothes. Any U.S. customer who purchases a garment from Reformation online will receive their shipment in a box—plus a special return label addressed to a clothing recycler. You then load up the box with any gently used clothing and shoes you want to have recycled, slap on the return label and leave it out for your mail carrier.
It’s free and you don’t even have to leave your house.
