Sometimes it’s important to make a statement (and I’m referring to 'make' quite literally here) in order to inspire some semblance of a change; with his second-hand clothes sculptures, Derick Melander does just that.

Bringing attention to the sad state of textile waste, Derick Melander has carefully folded these thrifty items into towering structures. But in case you worry that they themselves defeat the purpose, Derick Melander donates the clothes afterward.
