According to this Treehugger article* by Katherine Martinko, 30-50% of returned clothing from online stores are not restocked but rather end up in a landfill. Keep this in mind when making purchases from online stores, especially if you intend to return some items. For example, the practice of ordering multiple sizes of clothing just to try them out and get the right fit may contribute to more waste than expected.
