Americans have an awful lot of clothes cluttering up their homes. The EPA estimates that we’re throwing away about 10 pounds of clothes per person, per year. Meanwhile, we’re consuming about 20 billion garments, or 68 pieces of clothing and 7 pairs of shoes per person every year.

That’s really not bad!
