If you are like most of us, we usually drop off our old clothes at the nearest Goodwill. I am here to tell you to "STOP DOING THAT!" As a former fashion techie, I have curated a list of the top 6 sustainable retailers that will reward you for donating your hand-me-downs.
Scroll through to find some juicy steals!
Did you know that this fashion powerhouse has the goal of using 100% sustainably sourced materials by 2030? Let’s help them achieve this by donating our unwanted clothing! Thus far, they have collected 78,000 TONS of clothing via customer donations worldwide. Receive 15% off per donation when you drop off your unwanted clothes.
2. Eileen Fisher
This minimalistic brand was created via inspiration from a simple kimono! Bring your unwanted Eileen Fisher pieces to any retail location, and if you don’t live near a store, you can mail your pieces in and receive $5 per garment.
This denim icon offers all recycling services in stores! You can donate ANYTHING denim! Your donated items will be used for community building projects such as libraries, hospitals, and schools! I mean cmon, is there any better incentive to donate than that?! Well, actually there is…Not only will you feel superhuman you will also receive 20% off any single item.
4. The North Face
Bring any of your unwanted clothes/footwear from any brand into any North Face location and receive $10 towards your next purchase totaling over $100! We have been spending quality time in the outdoors these days, what better way to stock up on some essential outerwear gear and give back in return?! Give back, get back - right?
Besides their amazing supersale going on right now, Madewell will take ANY and ALL jeans – new, used, and from every brand! Bring your unwanted jeans and for every pair, you donate, you’ll receive $20 off a new pair of Madewell jeans!
This brand is hands down my favorite when it comes to durable and multifunctional for the outdoors or just on the daily! Bring your Patagonia gear to any store and receive a store credit towards your next Patagonia purchase. Credit ranges from $10-$100 depending on the item!
