Levi’s Adopts A Sustainable ‘SecondHand’ Denim Buyback Program

Oct 7, 2020

Category: Style

As part of the push for a more sustainable clothing industry, brands far and wide have begun offering upcycled options as a part of their regular lineup. Names like Patagonia and Taylorstitch have been some of the most vocal in their call to action, but that’s not to say there aren’t other players looking to join the mix. With the announcement of its Levi’s SecondHand program, Levi’s is among the latest — and certainly the most prominent — of brands to offer thrift clothing in its catalog.

Through Levi’s SecondHand, users will be able to buy used and vintage Levi’s-branded products. But that’s not all — in addition to selling used denim, Levi’s SecondHand will also offer a buyback program for current Levi’s owners. Regardless of the condition, any denim article guarantees you $5. However, if you’re clothing is of good enough quality, you can expect anywhere from $15 to $35 in gift card compensation. Levi’s entry into the second-hand market is proof of its commitment to sustainability. For if everyone bought one used item (over a new one) this year, it would save an estimated 449 million pounds of waste.
