Recycle and DIY

Recycling not only benefits the ecosystem, it benefits our economy.

According to the United Nations, 70 million tons of clothes are consumed each year worldwide.  For example to be able to make a pair of denim jeans 793 gallons of water are spent, since the cultivation of cotton requires a lot of water.  70 to 100 million trees are logged each year for fabric and rubber.  If placed end-to-end, those trees would circle the earth 7 times.  Recycling clothes should be a necessity as we are contributing to the improvement of the environment.
