Zero Waste Living

My husband and I both grew up on a farm.  We have been contemplating moving back to the country and have an offer in on some property.  All this has me thinking again about zero waste. 

I have been attempting to buy only natural fiber clothing for a number of years.  Why?  I think it feels better.  I don't use fabric softener (skin sensitivities, trying to cut back on chemicals, thriftiness and I hate the smell of it) so buying natural fibers REALLY cuts down on the static in my clothing. 

With my mind going in the direction of zero waste these days, I searched ways to dispose of/reuse/recycle cotton clothing.  I thought this was very interesting and had some ideas I hadn't even thought of: 

 
Here are the ideas I can think of (I'll try to ad more if I come across any others):
  1. You could turn the clothing into rags for cleaning, thus prolonging the life even further.
  2. You could also shred the fabric and turn it into yarn to be knitted/crocheted/macramé-ed into something new
  3. You can strip the clothing of anything reusable ( zippers, buttons, clasps) before you dispose of it
  4. Some all natural fiber fabrics could be composted (make sure you remove any non-biodegradable parts first)
  5. You could patch and repair the item, re-dyeing it to hide stains.

Can you think of other ideas to add to the list?  I can't wait to hear.
