The Northface recycling program is called “Clothes the Loop,” it provides customers in ten participating North Face stores with bins where they can drop off apparel hats and footwear from any brand.
Items collected are then sent to an I:Collect (I:Co) which either resells them or recycles them. Money generated by the program will be donated to the Conservation Alliance, which funds community-based campaigns to protect
Customers who donate used apparel earn discounts that can used towards the purchase of
The North Face products.
In addition to their public recycling efforts, the North Face is also reducing its own waste production.. Since 2008, the company has reduced the waste its headquarters sends to landfill by
35 percent and achieved an almost 17-fold increase in recycling.
