"If everyone in the UK bought one reclaimed woollen garment each year, it would save an average of 371 million gallons of water (the average UK reservoir holds about 300 million gallons) and 480 tonnes of chemical dyestuffs." (Evergreen)

"Over 70% of the world's population use second hand clothes." (textiles on line)

"The average lifetime of a garment is about three years." (textiles on line)
