We can’t stop people from outgrowing their clothes, wearing through them or deciding that it’s time for something new. However, we can help to ensure that worn clothes don’t end up in landfills. Our Clothes the Loop program encourages people to drop off unwanted clothing and footwear at The North Face retail and outlet stores. Recycle your used apparel and footwear (any condition, any brand) at our stores and earn a $10 reward toward your next purchase of $100 or more at The North Face.
The items dropped in our collection bins are sent to a recycling center where they are carefully sorted based on over 400 categories. They are then repurposed for reuse to extend their life or recycled into raw materials for use in products like insulation, carpet padding, stuffing for toys, and fibers for new clothing.
