Clearing out and organising your wardrobe is the first step towards better, and more sustainable personal style. Whether you're inspired by the new season, or looking to feel more productive during lockdown — the process of sorting your clothes is a positive move for the planet, and your bank statement.

Some pieces might rejoin the ranks of your coveted closet, while others might be better suited for resale, rental, or upcycling. As for items like old socks, worn knickers, and soiled fabrics, there are tons of places in the UK that will take your unwearable clothes, and recycle them into packing textiles to fill things like mattress toppers and car seats.
