Giving away an item of clothing because it doesn’t fit or just isn’t your style anymore? Go for it. But if your item isn’t in what you’d deem wearable condition, don’t toss it in that donation box either. “Donating items that are in working condition, contain all of their pieces and parts, and are free of stains and rips is the best way to ensure that your goods do the most good,” according to Goodwill. This goes for kids’ toys and household items, too. If it no longer works and can’t be fixed, don’t immediately throw it in the trash. Most household items and textiles can be recycled to prevent adding to landfills.
