We're proud to partner with circular fashion brand For Days and bring you the "Take Back Bag" aka "TBB"! The TBB is here to start a circular revolution and end fashion waste.
It's so easy: Order a Take Back Bag, clean out your closet, and send your filled bag to For Days (detailed instructions included with each purchased bag). And, you'll get a reward: You'll earn $20 in Closet Cash credit towards your next purchase at https://fordays.com/ for every Take Back Bag you ordered.
What’s the impact of the Take Back Bag?
Each Take Back Bag saves 16k gallons of water, 118 pounds of CO2 emissions, and 15 pounds of fashion waste from landfill. So far, For Days has saved 3M pounds of clothing from landfill, 24 million pounds of C02, and 3.2 million gallons of water through its Take Back program.
What am I allowed send back in the TBB?
Accepted are all textiles, including socks, underwear, sheets, pillow cases, towels, linens, shoes, and handbags in any condition. Ripped, torn or stained, your oldies will get a new life with the help of our recycling partners and be diverted from landfills.
How do you send it back?
Scan the QR code on your bag for shipping instructions. You will have the option to generate a USPS QR code or print a mailing label for drop off. The price of the Take Back Bag covers the shipping costs to you and sending your filled Take Back Bag back for recycling.
How much will it fit?
The Take Back Bag fits 15 lbs of fashion waste and measures 24 in x 24 in.
What are TBBs made of?
Take Back Bags are the world's most sustainable polymailer. Made of 100% recycled content (50% post consumer & 50% post industrial), they are fully recyclable, and 100% of returned Take Back Bags are recycled.
Why is it better to use a Take Back Bag than other donation options?
85% of ALL textiles end up in landfills and the average American throws away 80lbs of clothing a year. That includes resale, recycling, and donation efforts. If you send used items to For Days in the TBB, they go through a sorting and grading process with recycling partners to determine their next best life.
What happens to items sent back in the Take Back Bag?
50% of all Take Back Bag items are downcycled into shoddy, rags & insulation. Take Back Bag items are not upcyclable because they are made from unknown materials. So, they are turned into lesser-quality items like insulation or carpeting. Leigh Fibers and Phoenix Fibers are two of our expert down-cycling partners.
45% of all Take Back Bag items are resold to partners that service lower income communities. What this looks like: farmers in other countries accessing low-cost items to cover themselves against the sun.
5% of all Take Back Bag items are sadly, truly trash (think: plastic hangers)
