Mountain of discarded clothes in Chilean desert is visible from space (photo)

A mountain of discarded clothes in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile has reached such huge proportions that it can be seen from space.

Last month, the satellite imagery app SkyFi revealed views from orbit of the pile of clothes that is created as a result of the fast fashion industry, which produces an estimated 92 million tons of waste a year. Included in the clothing mountain are some unusual items, such as ski boots and unwanted Christmas sweaters.
