National Second-Hand Wardrobe Day is breathing new life into old clothes, allowing consumers to offset their carbon footprint by exchanging or recycling their used garments. It is celebrated on August 25th each year. Buying clothes second hand and donating your used clothing creates a positive cycle that is crucial for cutting back our waste.
