People Are Throwing Out Clothes After Three Pics On Social Media

People are throwing out trendy, perfectly good clothes after they have appeared a specific number of times on social media. 

People are buying twice as many clothes as we did a decade ago. Additionally, we’re throwing out our clothes more quickly than ever.

A new study reported by Evening Standard, shows we’re not throwing out our clothes because they’re worn out or even out of style. No. One in 10 people throw out perfectly good, trendy clothing because the clothes have appeared too many times on their Instagram or Face Book.

The survey also found that one in 5 people admitted the unwanted clothing ends up in the trash rather that being donated or recycled.

In light of the situation, environmentalists are encouraging consumers to keep the unwanted clothing out of landfills.
