Textile recycling is the process of recycling old clothes and other textiles for reuse or material recovery from trash. Malaysians dumped a record 195,300 tons of textile waste in 2018, and S.W.Corp. Malaysia revealed that the amount of textile waste entering our landfills had doubled from 2.8 percent in 2012 to 6.3 percent in 2018. The impact of textile recycling is becoming more generally recognized. Globally, an estimated 100 billion garments are produced each year. Natural fibres can take a few weeks to a few years to decompose and may release methane and CO2 gas into the atmosphere. It also might release toxic substances into groundwater and surrounding soil. Old clothes are also hard to reuse due to the variety of fabrics used, even though every shirt we bought was labelled as 100 percent cotton, it makes separation difficult, so it is labour-intensive, slow, and involves a skilled workforce. One of the main reasons people buy a lot of clothes is because of their lifestyle, occupation, and desire to keep up with the latest trends (Dhan, 2022). Those in the entertainment, fashion, and corporate industries are supposed to dress more presentably and likely to abandon more clothes. Therefore, this study is aimed at identifying the new methods that have been used to reuse old clothes among youth and teenagers online. 50 youth and teenager respondents in total participated in this study. In this recycling clothes campaign, innovative techniques for reusing old clothes have been employed by youth and teenagers. To learn more about these techniques, questionnaires and observation were used as methodologies.
