OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
RECYCLE FOR IMPACT
GREEN EILEEN is dedicated to the principles of environmental sustainability and innovation for the collective good. By reselling gently worn Eileen Fisher clothing, we are supporting a product life cycle that is good for the earth and the people who inhabit it.
SUSTAINABILITY IN THE GARMENT INDUSTRY
Sustainability is about having a long-term orientation to the way we use the Earth’s natural resources. In recent years, corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability have received mainstream attention, and the global consciousness has taken up the charge to reduce our human impact. However, the garment industry is still one of the largest sources of waste and pollution.
Did you know?
• The average American throws away 68 pounds of clothes per year.
• Over 4% of global landfills are filled with clothing and textiles.
• Almost 100% of used clothing is recyclable.
THE FUTURE OF CLOTHES
GREEN EILEEN is reimagining the way we think about our clothes. Inspired by EILEEN FISHER's timeless designs and high quality fabrics, our recycled clothing initiative gives a second (or third!) life to your clothes. By donating or buying a gently used EILEEN FISHER garment from GREEN EILEEN, you are helping to revolutionize the future of how we buy and wear clothes.
