Why this company wants your old underwear

New startups are recycling worn fabrics as a way to combat the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Knickey is a subscription service where people can trade in worn-out underwear for a new pair of organic cotton underwear. After just six months, the company has collected thousands of pairs that is then sent to a nonprofit to be recycled. While the recycling process itself isn’t always sustainable, companies are trying to educate shoppers to pay attention to where their clothes come from.
