Consider the classic white t-shirt. Annually, we sell and buy 2 billion t-shirts globally, making it one of the most common garments in the world. But how and where is the average t-shirt made, and what’s its environmental impact? Angel Chang traces the life cycle of a t-shirt.

This video surprised me the most, and I nearly dropped my glass of OJ after the first few seconds. But good thing, I don't "overbuy" T-shirts, and I use hand-me-downs and cycle through the same T-shirts that come out of washing, like a maximum of 5-6. *:D*
My family have hundreds of old clothes then use half of them donate, half of them use to clean things. Very useful in Vietnam, because you can find billions of T-shirt shop at there. BTW,I 'm Vietnamese :)))
The average household does 400 loads of laundry per year?! That's over 1 per week!
Here we do 1-2 per week, and there are 3 people living in this house. And we only line dry our clothes. Even when it's 32 degrees outside, if the sun is shining and the wind is blowing, the laundry WILL dry. When it's colder we hang them on racks inside the house. Our dryer's been out of commission for... 5-6 years? and we don't plan to replace it any time soon. There's just no need.
a far too simple way to address a complex problem that includes production, consumption but also work. We can stop producing and buying, it's very simple. At the end of the day we don't need many things, we don't need the quantity of food we have today. We don't need the clothes we have today. We don't need cars, bicycles, new tech items every six months. And then how do we solve unemployment and poverty?
I think we can use shirts which cannot be worn to make them into DIY fabric pouches,brooches,plushes, and many more!this way we can reduce the amount of wasted time and effort for cotton and rather to throw them away.(I think my English is broken)
Dryers absolutely destroy clothing. I never use dryers on my clothes any more, and the clothes last several times as long now. I've been wearing the same 6 shirts for the last 3 years and they are all still in fine shape, barring some minor fading.
Good thing don't buy much clothes and i make sure it lasts me years (i still wear clothes that's probably 7- 8 years already). If it doesn't fit anymore I give it to my younger cousins. I knew that clothes actually play a part in polluting bodies of water since my past school had a river near it. We clean the river from time to time and the amount of fabric we collect every time is really alarming. What i did not know is that just the farming for cotton, making the shirt and export already plays a big part in polluting the earth. This is sad. The fact that media plays a part in pushing us people to buy and discard clothes just like that.
The effective home remedies for baldness and hair loss in men include oil massages and including coconut milk, eggs, avocados, orange juice, aloe vera, neem paste, henna, mayonnaise, honey, black pepper, vinegar, and lemon juice in their diet.

For millions of men across the world, regardless of culture, class, nationality, religion, or color, hair loss is an unavoidable aspect of growing older. Fortunate are those who do not face hair loss problems even in their old age. However, a majority of men face this issue in their 40s, 50s, or even earlier.
Causes of Baldness or Hair Loss in Men.
There are a number of causes of male hair loss, including:
Male pattern baldness Alopecia Fungal infections Psychological disorders Chemotherapy side effects Nutrient deficiencies Hormonal imbalances Lack of circulation on the scalp Stress.
It is important to note that hair loss occurs in women as well, for some similar reasons, and some different ones. We will cover hair loss in women in a separate article. Men predominantly suffer from this health condition, particularly male pattern baldness and early onset hair loss from age 20-40.
However, there are ways to slow down the rate of male hair loss or baldness, and even stimulating the hair follicles to reproduce hair. A few home remedies for hair loss and baldness issue are discussed below.
