Rethink, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

Each year, the world consumes 80 billion new pieces of clothing – and sends 26 billion pounds to the landfill. Every time one of those t-shirts goes to waste, so do the 700 gallons of water that went into creating it. That’s a lose-lose situation for your closet and the environment. While people consistently state they donate or reuse their goods, our third annual State of Reuse Report found that 60% of North Americans shop secondhand once a year or less.

People are missing out on the full cycle of reuse when they overlook the importance of shopping thrift. Learn how we can all take action to close the loop on the colossal issue of textile waste here.

Together we keep over 700,000,000 pounds of reusable items out of landfills every year.

    It can take over 700 gallons of water to make just one cotton T-shirt. So, we challenged shoppers to offset that impact on the planet by making their next new tee a thrifted one. The response came flooding in—more than doubling our goal of 700 million gallons to wind up saving over 1.5 billion gallons! 

     

    It’s a fact that 95% of the clothes North Americans throw away into landfills each year could be reused or recycled. Give a sh!rt™ about your clothing footprint and make a positive impact by donating clothes you no longer need.

     

    If you give a sh!rtTM about the environment, there are a few simple things you can do—like shopping smarter and reusing clothes instead of ditching them—that make a world of difference for our planet.
