HELPSY is the best way to recycle your clothes.

Not Fun Facts

It's hard to believe but over 85% of clothes wind up in the trash!  It's the norm to recycle plastics, glass, metal and paper but sadly clothes, shoes, and accessories have long been ignored. In fact, 10% of our landfills are textiles. That's 81 pounds per person, per year. Makes zero sense to us either.

We got you

HELPSY makes reusing and recycling your clothes and shoes more convenient and easy than ever. With over 1,700 collection containers in the Northeast US, and growing, we collected 20 million pounds of clothes last year. We are the largest collector in the NE and we have big plans to make keeping clothes out of the trash easier for you.

we DON'T STOP AT COLLECTION

We also think it's a shame more clothes aren't made out of pre-loved materials.  Our goal is to support upcycling, reuse and changing the way we and the fashion industry thinks of the clothing life cycle.  95% of that could be reused, upcycled or recycled. 75% is reusable, 20% is recyclable

Here's where you come in

Let's work together to radically change how unwanted clothing is collected and re-used.
