Did you know North Americans discard 68 pounds of clothes and textiles per person every year? Or that the fashion industry is the second-biggest polluter? Sobering stats, but a new local startup called My Modern Closet is working to combat fashion waste with a fresh approach. Instead of trashing your out-of-season clothes or hauling them to the consignment store, just make an appointment on MMC's website. Staffers will come to your house, pick up your clothes (just throw 'em in a bag) and sell your "collection" via MMC's online shop and pop-up events. Plus, you get paid within 24 hours of pickup whether the clothes sell or not. No waste, no regrets and more space in your closet.
