Donating used clothes is not just a philanthropic act, but also extends the life of clothing and helps keep clothes out of the landfill. Major clothing companies can play a vital role in popularizing the idea of donating used clothes and make recycling clothing as natural for the consumer as recycling a can or bottle. 

Levi Strauss & Co. and Goodwill have launched a new program to make it easier for consumers to donate used clothing and shoes. Donors can use a free shipping label available on the U.S. e-commerce websites for Levi’s and Dockers brands. This innovative way to donate is supported by a tool called Give Back Box and builds upon LS&Co.'s commitment to social and environmental sustainability.
