Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Over time, our society has gradually been trained to recycle
items that are typically tossed into the trash. As a result of providing access
to recycle bins it’s become a societal norm to discard items based on the
material they are made from. Particularly, in the Pacific Northwest, citizens
don’t have to think twice about sustainability, it’s become a lifestyle.
Similar to paper materials, plastic bottles, cans, and other
various product containers, clothing is another recyclable item. There are a
number of clothing items that continue to be thrown away; this contributes to
hazardous conditions in our society and around the world.
