    This is a great infographic to showcase just how much of our natural resources are needed to produce a single garment. This kind of waste needs to be curbed by clothing companies setting recycling plans into motion. A great example of a t-shirt company that has a recycling model in place is http://www.lonesomegeorge.net. They even give you a discount on your next purchase each time you recycle one of your old Lonesome George & Co. shirts.
