What happens to my stuff?

We’re committed to finding the next, highest use for your old products. Clothing sent back to us is sorted and processed into over 250 grades and over 90% of it is kept out of landfill. Some items are cleaned and re-sold globally, some are fiber-to-fiber recycled, some fibers are sorted for larger recycling programs, and the rest is down-cycled for various applications like stuffing for punching bags and dog beds as well as fortifying building materials. Our goal is to minimize textile waste and maximize the reuse of resources.

Can I Recycle Non-Clothing Textiles in The Take Back Bag?

Yes, you can include non-clothing textiles such as bed linens and towels in The Take Back Bag. We aim to recycle and repurpose a wide range of textiles to reduce waste.

Why customers love cleaning out  their closets with The Take Back Bag

“Love the Take Back Bag! This will be my third one. It fits a large amount of textiles, so I can really pack it in with all the items that I can no longer donate.”

Verified Buyer

“I got my first bag, stuffed it full of worn out t-shirts, printed the shipping label, and dropped it off at the post office. It was so easy, I ordered 2 more bags. I used my closet cash to get Zero Waste laundry sheets. They work great. Everything should be this easy peasy.”

Barbara

“What a delightfully easy way to recycle. I was getting a little weary of donating my clothes at the local thrift shop, watching them dumped into heaps and heaps of other donations.”
