Levi’s inspires us to recycle old clothing and shoes

Americans send about 24 billion pounds of unwanted clothing, shoes, and other textiles to landfills each year. That’s a staggering amount of waste, considering that an estimated 95% of those textiles could be recycled, if only there were simple, easy, and widespread ways for consumers to do so. Now, Levi Strauss & Co. has announced to do its bit to reduce this massive stream of potentially recyclable waste. Clothing and shoes you don’t want any longer can be returned so they will be “re-worn, repurposed, or recycled” by its clothing collection partner, I:CO.
