What happens to all the clothing that doesn't sell?

Clothing that doesn't sell often has a second life. Many retailers donate unwanted clothing to charities to help those in need. Other clothing is repurposed, recycled or reused. This can involve cutting the fabric into rags or cleaning cloths, or using the fabric to make items like insulation, stuffing for furniture, or other items. Some clothing can be resold as vintage or secondhand clothing. There are even companies that specialize in breaking down clothing into fibers and recycling them into new materials. It's an eco-friendly way to keep clothing out of landfills and give it a new life.
