Along the lines of my old t-shirt recycling, used clothing stores should pay a buck for a shirt that can't be sold as "vintage" so it can be turned into other materials. Insulation products are currently out there that are made of discarded floor remnant from denim factories. I'm sure that free or close to free cotton could be used the same way. Man, do I have a lot of old socks and tshirts waiting to go to a better home than the landfill, but I don't have the time or energy to take my own advice and re-use them. There are those big drop boxes for clothes to go to a better place, but what about those outfits that seriously can't be used again? Shredded for insulation, I say!
