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.

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