95% of discarded clothing can be recycled or upcycled, however, only around 20% actually gets upcycled. Which leaves us with over 70% of used clothes ending up in landfills. A majority of these might be synthetic fabrics, the ones that will only sit there for decades together and never really biodegrade.
We seem to have forgotten that we only have 510 million sq. kms of area on our planet! No matter how many spacecrafts we build or how advanced technology gets, that isn't going to give us more land to fill up our scrap with.
