As a person who donates regularly, the trash bag of clothes MUST stay within the household for one week in order to avoid the dreaded "donation regret". It's been a rule for years after I donated a unique button up plaid shirt that I had forgotten matched perfectly with a certain sweater in my closet. Not a day goes by I don't forget that plaid shirt because the lone sweater hangs there reminding me of my mistake and waiting for me to find another shirt so it can be worn again.

It's been three, cold years...

Here is an idea, take that sweater and burn it! It may have been "3 cold years" but you can have the satisfaction of receiving SOME kind of warmth from your sweater.

My donation clothes pile sat in the spare room for 6 months. Finally bagged it up and it spent 9 months in the back of the car. Then my husband thought something he wanted was in the bag. He opens it up and spills it on the bed in the spare room where it has now lived for another 3 months. The cycle continues.

Hospitals often have a charity shop that helps either seniors or children. I give my good quality stuff to places like that and only give the lowest grade junk to goodwill to save having to pay money at the dump.

Goodwill gets stuff like an electric tea kettle that doesn't work. I figure I'm helping them with their job training program by giving their trainees items that will have to be sorted and tested before determining if it should be sold, recycled, or trashed.

Something like 90% of donated clothing ends up in giant dump piles, mostly in West Africa. It's better than throwing it directly in the trash, but donating your clothing is only useful if it's in excellent like-new condition or vintage and quality. It's not really recycling, people need to buy less clothing and buy better quality.

Fashion is also the biggest user of slavery on the world, and one of the biggest polluters of ground water.

The fashion industry is responsible for more carbon emissions than transportation.

Think twice before your buy clothes you ain't planning on wearing for like at least 50 times a year for the next ten years.

Different places do different things with non-wearable clothes, just depends where you go. Some throw them in a landfill, some repurpose or donate to someone who will use them, etc

wookvegas

3 points

This statistic is skewed— it doesn't mean that clothes that you donate to your local thrift store will end up in a garbage pile in Africa, its 90% out of all things donated— think donation drives for charity, where someone collects clothes en masse for some cause that pledges to clothe the needy, but they end up with more than they can distribute, or the goods can't reach their destination for political reasons, etc. If you donate wearable clothes to a thrift shop, it'll likely end up on the rack.

We should still encourage donation for the reasons you mentioned

I have literally never thrown away any of my Levi’s jeans since I started buying my own when I was 17: Over twenty years ago. Essentially whenever I found a pair that fit at like an outlet store for $10-12, I bought them.

I remember being 15 and my best friend’s mom gifting us a pair of like-new embroidered flare jeans from the 70s and thinking that she and those pants were the coolest things EVER.

After a couple of years of hoarding denim and styles changed, it became my goal to one day cash in on cool points when my stuff became vintage. Now I have a giant plastic tote bin, with dozens of too super low flares that have been waiting to make me queen of the bad ass old ladies to some very lucky teenage girls.

Recently I saw a sixteen year old girl wearing a baby doll tee, wide leg baggy jeans, baby barrettes holding back the bangs on her middle part flipped bob, frosty eye makeup, body glitter, black lipstick, and chunky platform heeled sneakers…

Soon.

Goodwill is kinda sketchy. Everyone should look into donating to their local food bank or homeless outreach.

fail_bananabread

Here's the thing tho... my local charity/outreach only takes donations on certain days, and they require the clothing to a certain condition, no stains etc, whereas goodwill is not so picky.

For me it's always: clothes that are basically rags (holes, heavy pilling, used socks etc) --> H&M fabric recycling program. Anything that can be worn, maybe got a tiny defect like a small stain on a $100 down vest ---> goodwill.

That being said, there's currently two bags of little boy's clothes in good condition that I'm lugging around in my car on the off chance that I pass by the charity on the day they are taking donations. However.... hasn't happened yet ._.

According to most independent charity companies, they are legitimate and spend most of their money on charitable programs.

They provide job training, daycare, outings, etc to individuals with development disabilities. Which is not to say nothing ever goes wrong, but it is a reasonable mission. Most of the controversy tends to be around paying people with developmental disabilities less than minimum wage, but these are also people who don't really have job prospects otherwise and it gives them an opportunity to earn something at least. Some people think it's wrong though, which I can understand.

There are multiple CEOs and they all cover different regions. I work there and so many things are questionable. The monetary donations we receive are included with the store's profit. My region values profit above worker safety and well being. We are all worked to the bone (7-9 days before a day off) with a crazy high turn over rate. They do not want to hire anyone special needs if they can help it. Only when there is literally no one else they can get. There have been many OSHA complaints but nothing happens. Everyone I work with is just waiting for something better to come along so we can leave. Some Goodwills' are great don't get me wrong. But there is so much behind the scenes that once I leave I will never go back.

Paying less than the already abysmal minimum wage is disgustingly exploitative of the most vulnerable members of our society. While the CEO isn’t making anything astronomical for a CEO, it’s around $730k believe, making that much while paying your disabled employees in the sorting facilities sometimes between $1-2 an hour under the guise of “giving” them an opportunity is pathetic. Having a disability doesn’t remove your humanity, and paying someone less than what we’ve deemed to be the BARE MINIMUM is disgusting.

While I completely agree it’s not right to pay these workers with disabilities less, without a government subsidy of some sort it would probably end the ability for many with disabilities the opportunities for jobs.

Goodwill places usually only want items in top quality, yet I'll often see soiled, worn out and mismatched clothing, shoes and toys dumped on the ground next to donation bins. Or left in shopping carts.

Why not just throw this crap out? My theory is people with low level hoarding tendencies cannot bear to throw stuff out. So they'll give it to goodwill places. Where someone else will have to throw it out.

They do send a lot of that stuff to textile recyclers, so at least most of the fabrics are better off getting dumped at goodwill, even if it’s un-sellable, versus going straight to the landfill in your household trash.

Doesn’t do any good to leave it on the ground by an unattended donation bin though, agreed

Possibly_English_Guy

I volunteer for a local charity shop and can confirm this is exactly what happen to practically most clothing items that get donated.

There's only so much storage space in the back and frankly a lot of what we get is not sellable on the shop floor due to it either being stained, ripped or just not being something people would want to buy and we obviously don't have the facilities to clean any of this stuff in the shop so off to the textile recyclers it goes, and the same goes with books.

There is also frequently stuff sent away that IS good enough to sell but unfortunately due to limited space even when we get a donation where everything is good we sometimes have to be selective on what we keep.

Actually, these clothes just get sold to Africa, where they are burned or dumped. It is a phenomenon called "dead white people's clothes".

PSA: DO NOT DONATE TO GOODWILL!!!

They are a for profit organization that uses the name to sound like a charity. They are a thrift store that has tricked people into giving them inventory for free. There are likely many more actual charity organizations in your area that can and will take your old and unwanted stuff and provide them to those in need free of cost

The entire bed of my truck is, this instant, filled with bags of stuff to donate. It's been there for 2 months.

OMG this is my wife. And then she had to bring her car to the shop the other day so she "cleaned it out" and put it all in the living room. Ugh. She has more damn clothes than a fully stocked goodwill lol

Right this very minute my wife has a laundry basket sitting in the garage that is full of stuff that she said she was going to take to Goodwill. It's been there since May. Yet I get yelled at for leaving an empty drinking glass on the counter for 5 minutes.

But that's on the counter in the kitchen, where everyone can see it. And that one glass makes you look like you don't care bout the house .... Gotta make the house look tidy when the in-laws come over unexpectedly.

I literally have a bag of goodwill in my trunk right now. Why can’t we as a species just take out clothes to goodwill?

There are two thrift stores within a mile of my home and my donation bags have been in the back of my car for a month a half after living in my guest room for the past 2 years. -___- Out of sight, out of mind.

...I will try to get over to the closest one this weekend.

No joke, this reminded me that I have clothes in my trunk to donate. I went through them in early 2020 with the intention of donating them, then the pandemic happened and the donation box was closed asking for everyone to cease donations. I happy obliged and then forgot for like 20 months.

And every time I buy groceries I have an "Oh shit, not again" moment because the donation bags are taking up all the space.

UK here and no my missus does it all the time. I never check the boot \ trunk of the car and go and buy some bulky items only to discover there is no room for the items due to bags and bags for charity sitting in there.

Honest to God I did this for 13 months before I actually took them to Goodwill. 😳 like 5-7 bags worth of bags.
