Don't burn your bra, recycle it!
"An honor system or honesty system is a philosophical way of running a variety of endeavors based on trust, honor, and honesty. The negatives may include community shame, loss of status, loss of a personal sense of integrity and pride or in extreme situations, banishment from one's community."
Returns are cool, but useless carbon emissions and energy waste is not. So what is a company to do?
Let’s try the honor system!
When you make a purchase, it has a cost to get it to you in oil, energy, gas and emissions. NOTHING you can do. But that carbon footprint is now, DOUBLED, if you MAKE A RETURN... Once received, we use more energy to repack it and restock it... creating more wasteful packaging to make it look shiny & new again.
Will it work? Who knows, but I trust you, so let's see.
Wearable & Walkable Collections create hubs of collection locations that make it easy for everyone to recycle clothes, shoes, textiles & accessories out of landfills, while raising money for charitable organizations.
