Levi Strauss teams up with Goodwill

Nov 19, 2015

Levi Strauss has teamed up with Goodwill on a new program for the holiday season. Customers will be able to give used clothes and shoes to Goodwill, by using a shipping label available on the US websites for Levi's and Dockers that is free to costumers.

Levi Strauss will also support Goodwill's mission to create jobs by donating $5 for every box of donated clothing shipped during the holiday season, up to $50,000. On December 1, 2015, LS&Co. will double its contribution to $10 for every free shipping label printed (and ultimately shipped) in support of the Global Day of Giving.

"LS&Co. is a company guided by a strong tradition of giving back, and this holiday season we want to give our fans an opportunity to support their local community when they shop on Levi.com and Dockers.com,” said Marc Rosen, head of global e-commerce at Levi Strauss & Co. “Our partnership with Goodwill gives consumers a chance to reuse the boxes they receive from us, fill them with clothing they no longer need and support the important work of Goodwill in the process —it’s a win for online shoppers, the community and the planet."

The new program also aims to reduce the amount of clothing, textiles and shoes that go to landfills. Last year, Goodwill diverted more than three billion donated goods from the landfills.
