Monday is Earth Day!

April 19, 2019

Monday is Earth Day. 

So is Tuesday. Wednesday, too. 

Can't forget Thursday or Friday.

The weekend days? Those are some of the best earth days made.

I think you see where we're going with this. We believe all the days belong to the earth. Even so, It's fantastic to have a focal point in the year to raise awareness about what's happening with the environment. We love having the time to celebrate together.

We want to use this year to celebrate our brand partners. Each and every one of them has made a significant commitment of time and money to become more circular. They are making choices to do what is good and right for people and the planet. The decision for big and small brands to go circular, to take responsibility for the entire lifecycle of a product, to recover value and reduce waste is a big investment. Our brand partners are choosing a path to honor the planet every day by doing business differently. They're also collectively diverting 1 MILLION POUNDS of apparel and textiles from landfill by 2025. In 2018 alone, our brand partners made a big impact on the planet. How big? Check it out:

Total waste diverted = 67,151 pounds 
Total toxic chemicals offset = 102,000 pounds
Total Water saved = 49,262,537 gallons
Equivalent carbon saved = 10,317 gallons of gas

Earth Day is at its heart about a partnership. It's about us sharing the natural world and working for its good together. Thanks to our brand partners for the steps they've taken this year and thanks to you, the customers who make the movement who drive the change forward. We're all in this together - figuratively and literally - every single day.

Happy Earth Day!
