Levi Strauss and Goodwill to create jobs via donating

Staff writer |
Levi Strauss & Co. in partnership with Goodwill announced a new program that provides consumers an opportunity to donate used clothing and shoes.

That could be done by using a shipping label available on the U.S. ecommerce sites for the Levi’s and Dockers brands that is free to consumers.

During the holiday season, Levi Strauss & Co. will support Goodwill’s mission of creating jobs by contributing $5 to Goodwill, up to $50,000 (with a guaranteed minimum of $25,000), for every box of donated clothing shipped.

Additionally, on Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2015, Levi Strauss & Co. will double its contribution to $10 for every free shipping label printed and ultimately shipped in support of the Global Day of Giving. This innovative way to donate is supported by a tool called Give Back Box and builds upon LS&Co.’s commitment to social and environmental sustainability.

In addition to giving back to the community by supporting Goodwill’s mission, LS&Co.’s new program aims to reduce the clothing, other textiles and shoes that go to landfills. Goodwill alone diverted more than three billion pounds of donated goods from the landfills last year.
