Apparel retailer The North Face has launched "Clothes The Loop," a program that encourages shoppers to recycle used apparel. Shoppers can bring used gear - any brand, any condition - to any of the 10 participating retail locations. For each drop off (one per day), they receive $10 off their next purchase. The items are then sent to a recycling center where they're sorted based on over 400 categories. They're then reused 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.
