As Back to School shopping season kicks off with tax free weekends, promotions and big discounts nationwide, selected Maurices locations in South Michigan have pledged a greener shopping experience for customers as they scoop up the latest trends and fall fashions.
Maurices has joined the annual Shop&Recycle Campaign, sponsored by American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS), to provide easy, convenient drop off destinations for gently used, out of season, unwanted clothing, shoes and team wear while shopping for new gear. Every item donated supports the Michigan Humane Society.
A total of 12 stores in Southern Michigan are hosting instore clothing donation drives throughout the month of August, and have sparked some friendly competition in the process. Every pound donated at the stores will be collected and weighted by ATRS at its Jackson facility. The store that collects the highest number of pounds will be treated to lunch for all its employees at an area restaurant.
"The Maurices stores in Southern Michigan are so excited to be a part of Shop&Recycle,” says Natalie Budd, Co-Sales Leader, Jackson, MI Maurices, "We love to participate in events like this textile recycling drive that benefit our hometown and support a great cause!”
Back to school shoppers are encouraged to bring a bag of gently used, out of season, unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories or team wear. Selected stores are offering a 20 percent off coupon for each donation, which can be applied towards new gear.
Sponsored by American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS), the annual campaign to Shop&Recycle aims to educate shoppers about the importance of recycling during one of the highest spending seasons of the year and shop sustainably in the communities where we all live, work, shop and play.
Maurices® serves a similar mission and launched its Bring Your Own Bag campaign back in 2008 to encourage shoppers to reuse their shopping bags and decrease their environmental impact.
Look for posters and flyers promoting the campaign at Maurices retail locations throughout Southern Michigan. To learn more about the items accepted in ATRS Clothing & Shoe Recycling bins or find a drop off location near you, please visit the ATRS website or call the 24-Hr Hotline 866-900-9308.
