Our Clothes the Loop program encourages people to drop off unwanted clothing and footwear at The North Face Retail and Outlet Stores. Recycle your gently-used apparel and footwear at our stores and earn a $10 reward toward your next purchase of $100 or more at The North Face. The items dropped in our collection bins are sent to our non-profit partner, Soles4Souls. Their mission is to create sustainable jobs and provide relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing. The items put into our bins are repurposed for micro-enterprise programs that aim to provide small entrepreneurs with business opportunities.
