Did you know that up to 85% of used clothing ends up in landfills? Unfortunately, donation organizations and resale platforms have so much inventory that they often dispose of it through less-than-desirable means—typically exporting it to other countries since it is cheaper to ship it out than responsibly managing the excess inventory in the US. That’s leading to big problems for our environment.

While shopping smarter, shifting from regular fast-fashion buys to a capsule wardrobe, clothing swaps with friends, and rental clothing programs all help; it still isn’t enough. That’s where Trashie comes in.

Trashie is a business on a mission to reduce garment and textile waste. They are experts in textile recycling and have created a fun, rewarding system to encourage consumers to recycle responsibly with The Take Back Bag.

Ahead, learn how Trashie works and what you can do today to make a better impact with your donation box while also earning some pretty awesome rewards.
