Part of sustainability and "slow fashion" is paring down. Look at your closet and be honest with yourself about what items you actually wear and what items you would be better off without. I like to say that if you can't think of three different outfit combinations with that item then it is time to go! When you've decided it is time to let go of some clothing here are ways to do so:
Donate Your Clothes
-The Huffington Post put together a comprehensive list of places to donate to including go-to's such as Goodwill and Salvation Army, as well as specific programs like Dress for Success! (Note: Goodwill will take your clothing regardless of the condition and make sure it is reused in some way, shape or form.)
-Another place to donate, specifically for denim is The Blue Jeans Go Green program which partners with retailers and university to reuse the fabric as insulation.
Sell Your Clothes in Store
-You can always try to sell your lightly used items at thrift or consignment shops. These can be hit or miss because shops are often looking for specific brands, styles or colors at any given time. It's definitely worth a shot but good to have a back-up plan for the items that don't sell.
