RECYCLE TEXTILES QUICKLY & EASILY
Every year, over 87 billion tons of new clothing wind up in landfills or incinerators—and only 1% of discarded textiles ends up being repurposed. Retold Recycling gives your gently used shoes, clothing, and fabrics new life by matching them with thrift stores, donation centers, recyclers, resellers, and up-cyclers.
Every Retold Bag purchased automatically adds points to your Super Star Rewards account. Purchasing one bag covers shipping expenses and the recycling processes.
THE CORAL REEF ALLIANCE
We launched our Resort 2023 Coastal Coral Collection as a way to honor the natural treasures of the world's deep sea ecosystems. We're proud to announce that we've teamed up with the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) to turn our inspiration into action.
10% of all proceeds from our Coastal Coral Collection are donated to the Coral Reef Alliance.
Kenyan-based, Ocean-Sole artisans up-cycle over 100,000 pounds of discarded flip-flops every year - transforming the raw material into unique hand-carved sculptures. Purchase a sculpture here, 100% of proceeds supports Ocean Sole Artisans.
Sea Star Beachwear has donated 150+ pairs of its Beachcomber Espadrilles for artisans to wear while cleaning the beaches.
Soles4Souls makes it easy to donate gently-used shoes. With each donation, the organization can provide relief in disaster struck areas, fight poverty by creating small clothing resale businesses in developing countries, and protect the planet by repurposing unwanted items.
