Second Hand Clothes
A characteristic of nearly all human societies is wearing clothes, and it was created roughly 83,000 to 170,000 years ago. The type of clothes depends on gender, physique, social status, geographical circumstances, and sometimes cultural heritage. It serves many purposes, such as protection from weather, hazardous activities, harmful surfaces, or plants and insects. Clothing also has a variety of cultural and social functions. It can be used to indicate social status, and provide an expression of personal taste and style. Clothes have been made from a very wide range of materials from leather and furs to woven materials, to exotic natural and synthetic fabrics.
If you are planning to throw away your used clothes, please consider donating them to The Green Shed Canberra if they are in good condition. We are contracted by the ACT Government to offer the public an alternative to disposing their unwanted items to the landfill. Bring your unwanted clothing to us at the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre in Symonston or the Flemington Road Resource Management Centre in Mitchell.
