I give you some you rule to reflect: All the clothes of which we undo have arrived at the end of its life utility? We can allow us to only buy much new clothes because it has changed the fashion of the previous season? In our present consumer society it gives equal us if new clothes make lack, history is to change the used clothes, and to be to the last fashion not to feel us different from other people, without thinking to which all this entails because in the processes of manufacture of an article there are environmental impacts, like being in the manufacture of the Nylon, that is an artificial fiber, is used petroleum as raw material and we know well that it is a nonrenewable resource. Surely more in one go it happened to you that in spite of having a full closet of clothes, you do not know that to choose for vestirte. The changes fashionable are not accidental, behind it they are the textile industries that want to sell more, wish that we stop dressing our used clothes and they really obtain it. So that the fashionable change notices, they exhibit showcases with new designs and colors very different from those from the season previous. You observed that the fashions become to repeat every so many years? Obvious that after more than 10 years almost nobody owns those articles that were used, no matter how hard they were in good state because in each renovation of closet we had to be undressing to us of our used clothes. To almost anybody that lives in a developed country it happens to him to keep it because within a time it will return to be used. You will consider, ” I am in my right to make what wants, dress in fashion present, to spend my money in clothes if it is what desire and makes happy ” , but also I invite to you to that reflections exceed what already I mentioned before.
The problem posed here is that year to year we generated more and more textile residues. Then we must question to us what to do with as much clothes of second hand: we threw them in garbage dumps we incinerated, them allowing that certain components of the weaves that are toxic and polluting, harm the health of the alive beings and the environment? The treatment of these urban residues is important for all, as much at level social like environmental. For that reason were certain solutions since many city councils have put at the disposal of their citizens the containers of used clothes and footwear for quesean taken to different sectors according to the conditions in which they are: If they are possible to be reused, they are higienizan, they prepared and they given to poor people or they finish in stores of clothes of second hand. If they are not possible to be reused, they are recycle obtaining new spinnings, one occurs new uses them like being for cleaning rags, and in the last of the cases they are eliminated. With these measures aid to recycle the textile residues but is not avoided that the textile industry continues making new weaves that in their processes of production hit to the environment.
