Trashie, a pioneering retail recycling and rewards platform, has just unveiled its official launch.
Developed by the team behind For Days, Trashie introduces an innovative approach aimed at encouraging customers to recycle textiles while providing access to a diverse array of rewards.
Empowering retail recycling with Take Back Bag
Central to Trashie’s retail strategy is the Take Back Bag, which is available for purchase on its website at a retail price of $20.
Customers can conveniently fill the bag with clothing, shoes, accessories, and linens from any brand, regardless of condition, and return it to Trashie using a prepaid shipping label.
In return, customers receive $20 in TrashieCash, which can be redeemed for exclusive rewards at a plethora of retail outlets spanning dining, travel, clothing, beauty, wellness, and home goods.
Driving impact and sustainability through retail partnerships
Trashie’s retail-centric initiative has struck a chord, particularly with Gen Z and young millennials, driving measurable impact at a significant scale.

With alarming statistics from the US Environmental Protection Agency indicating that 80lbs per person of textiles are discarded into landfills annually in the country, Trashie’s Take Back Bag offers a practical solution for retailers and customers alike.
By diverting items from landfills, a single customer can make substantial reductions in carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and water usage.
Kristy Caylor, founder and CEO of Trashie, underscored the significance of the platform’s convenience and environmental impact within the retail landscape. Trashie’s efforts in 2023 alone resulted in diverting millions of items from landfills, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability within the retail sector.
Partnerships paving the way for sustainable retail practices
Trashie’s collaboration with retailers seeking to meet carbon-neutral targets efficiently and profitably is a cornerstone of its retail strategy.
Retail partners can seamlessly integrate the Take Back Bag into their offerings, thereby providing customers with a tangible opportunity to engage in sustainable retail practices.
Moreover, retailers can leverage Trashie’s rewards programme to foster customer loyalty and bolster their sustainability credentials.
With real-time metrics tracking landfill diversion, water savings, and CO₂ emission reductions, Trashie empowers retailers to measure and showcase the tangible impact of their sustainability efforts.
