So, what’s the problem?
Fashion is one of the most pollutive industries. We’re producing more clothing than ever before and wearing it much less. Over 85% of all textiles end up in landfills, including clothing from resale and donation centers. What they can't sell gets trashed or burned, causing major social and environmental problems. Most of it can be kept out of landfills if we’re thoughtful and proactive.
Luckily, we have a solution..
For Days is the first circular fashion brand. We've spent the last 4+ years building a network of expert recycling partners to keep clothing out of landfills. We design products for circularity. Everything is organic, non-toxic, and can be recycled into new fabric.
We collect, sort, and recycle used garments, linens and more, from any brand through our best-selling Take Back Bag.
What exactly is circularity?
It’s a future where all products are recycled, reused, and regenerated.
Everything remains in use as long as possible.
The old way:
Take, Make, Waste
The new way:
Create, Circulate, Regenerate
of ALL textiles end up in landfills or are burned
of the world’s greenhouse gases are from the fashion industry
of used clothing is resold in the United States
Every 1 Second
the equivalent of one garbage truck worth of textiles is landfilled or burned
It Takes 200 Years
for synthetic and chemical-treated clothing to decompose (and it leaches toxic chemicals)
For Days Clothing

We design for circularity. All of our garments are made with 100% recyclable materials.
For Days oldies are fiber-to-fiber recycled into new materials by our partners, including Recover and Hallotex.
It is always best to reuse clothing first. Our partners aim to resell garments to keep them in-use in their current state.
Since 2018, we’ve recycled 4 tons of used For Days clothing. These are currently being made into 100% Closed Loop Collections, which will be launching soon.

Other Fun Facts
We’ve vetted the top sorting and grading facilities. Our recycling partners sort every item into 1 of 250 grades to determine the next stage of the product’s life
Insider info: many sorters use 30 grades, which is less precise and unfortunately results in more waste. Many of those items end up in the wrong place and, in turn, are thrown out
Take Back Bag items are not upcyclable because they are made from unknown materials. So, they are turned into lesser-quality items like insulation or carpeting (aka they are downcycled). Leigh Fibers and Phoenix Fibers are two of our expert downcycling partners.
Take Back Bag items that can be resold are sent to resale partners that service lower income communities. What this looks like: farmers in other countries accessing low-cost items to cover themselves against the sun. What this doesn’t look like: clothing waste being dumped in a landfill.
