Recyclable Retail Bags

File this under...sustainable...really sustainable, and really smart.

A retailer in Sweden has decided to take "recycling" one step further, by making it even easier to recycle your old clothes and donate them to charity.

You simply take the shopping bag that carries your new purchases, turn it inside out, fill it with your old clothes you want to donate, and stick the bag in the mail!

Say what?

That's right...when you turn the bag inside it, it's pre-printed with the address and postage to donate your old clothing. Recycling the bag and your old clothes. Plus the bag is also bio-degradable.

The name of the retailer is Uniforms for the Dedicated. I guess they are proving that they are dedicated to not only helping other people, but also helping to protect the planet.

Bravo! You can read more about it by clicking here.

What's your experience?  JIM.
