Rethink, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

 

Rethink Reuse - Give a Shirt about your clothing footprint

More than 2 million people helped save over 1.5 billion gallons of water this back-to-school season with one simple act: 
choosing a thrifted T-shirt instead of a new one.

     

    It can take over 700 gallons of water to make just one cotton T-shirt. So, we challenged back-to-school 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. Shoppers who give a sh!rt about their clothing footprint can make a positive impact by donating their old clothes.

     

    If you give a sh!rt 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.

     

    As a retailer, Savers gives a sh!rt about more than just the bottom line. We save 325,000 tons of reusable items from landfills every year. And we use those donations to benefit 120 nonprofit partners. 

    Together we keep over 650,000,000 pounds of reusable items out of landfills every year.
