In observance of Earth Day, which was Monday April 22nd, I’d like to share an article I read on Today.com. I hope it’ll encourage you to dispose of unwanted clothing in an environmentally friendly way and save you some money on future purchases.
Today.com published the following on April 18th 2019:
Here are eight retailers that will reward you for recycling old clothes or beauty-product packages.
Take old clothing and home items, like bedding or towels, to the nearest H&M location and drop it in one of their in-store collection boxes for a sweet coupon that will save you 15% off a future purchase.
Stop second-guessing that old pair of jeans sitting in your closet collecting dust. Instead, bring them to any Madewell store and receive $20 off a new pair. They don’t need to be jeans you purchased from Madewell.
You’ll be proud you did — Blue Jeans Go Green turns that old denim into housing insulation for communities around the country.
3. The North Face
It might not be a huge difference, but we’ll take anything we can get when it comes to discounts on a cozy North Face jacket. If you’ve got old clothes and shoes to get rid of, bring them to any North Face retailer or outlet store for $10 off your next purchase if it’s $100 or more.
You don’t even have to go to a store to reap these benefits. Simply pack up old jeans or other clothing items and bring them to your nearest post office using there ever-so-convenient pre-paid shipping label. These clothes will be headed to a nearby Goodwill.
In return, Levi’s will reward you with 20% off a future item.
If you simply cannot get enough of Kiel’s products (we get it!), then make it a habit to return every empty, full-size bottle to the store to rack up stamps on a rewards card. When you earn 10 stamps, you’ll be eligible to redeem one free travel-sized product.
If you love MAC products and have at least six packaging containers lying around, take them to the closest counter immediately to trade them in for a free lipstick! Please note, Lipsticks provided at no charge cannot be returned or exchanged. M·A·C Lover Back-to-M·A·C Expanded is only available in stores at this time.
Want a free Lush face mask? Now we’ve got your attention.
If you’re an avid Lush fan and have accumulated five or more plastic pots that had originally housed a liquid product, bring them to your local Lush retailer and they’ll reward you with a free mask.
Taking advantage of these programs helps to clear out your closets while being environmentally friendly. You can’t beat that.
