    We have a local second hand shop they depends on clothes that our community donates, to resell them. I even find good bargains!

    They don't take into account that people may lose weight (or gain) or that kids grow. I think donating is an excellent way to reduce waste. Would they rather have you throw it out??? Not everything can last.
