Europeans throw away 2 million tonnes of textiles each year. But do we really know what happens to our clothing when we donate them to charity shops and textile recycling banks?

Episode 3 looks at the ‘afterlife’ of our clothes, the effects that over-consumption is having on the charity shop sector, and the social & environmental impacts of exporting huge quantities of our fashion waste to the Global South.
