Marcus Gomez binds a 873-pound bale of used clothes at his California Clothing Recyclers warehouse in Sacramento, Calif. on Monday, March 18, 2013 before it can be shipped overseas. If the clothing you donated to a thrift store doesn't sell, it will likely wind up going to people like Marcus and Crystal Gomez. No, the Gomezes don't wear your old stuff, they sell the cast-offs to companies who ship the clothing overseas and sell it to Central America, South America, Africa, Europe and other far-flung locales. The used clothing is packaged into huge bundles. Shoes, purses belts are all packaged separately.
