Brand Partnership Opportunities
Clothing is the fastest growing waste stream in the United States. The equivalent of a garbage truck load of clothes is burnt or landfilled every second.
Not only is this a massive waste of resources, but clothing releases methane as it degrades in a landfill, which contributes to global warming.
Helpsy’s mission is to keep clothes out of landfills, because #clothesarenttrash.
Data & Transparency
How We Partner With Brands
As one of the largest used clothing collectors in the Northeast, Helpsy is uniquely capable of handling a wide variety of apparel items - in various conditions, styles and categories. We work with apparel, footwear and accessories businesses directly to give their inventory a second life.
What We Accept
We accept (and in some cases, purchase):
- Customer Returns
- Overstock/Out of Season
- Retired Rentals
- Miscellaneous/Unknown Items
Furthering our commitment to reducing waste and promoting circular practices, Helpsy offers a suite of additional services designed to transform the way fashion brands handle their inventory, including:
- Returns processing (with condition checks)
- Product photography for resale
- Certified recycling and downcycling through 3rd party service providers (costs vary)
- Charitable fundraising on behalf of the brand
Each brand’s needs are different, and Helpsy can create a personalized workflow, capturing brand-specific environmental impact data. This data can be shared with internal teams, or in external materials to communicate efforts towards sustainability.
Using our robust logistics infrastructure, we can collect these items via:
- Individual and bulk items by mail
- Full and partial trailers
- From stores by mail
- Direct from customers’ homes or our trucks in the DC to Boston corridor

Our Strategic Partnerships Specialist, Madison Mavis, represented us at this incredible event at the DVF headquarters in New York, and she shared the highlight from Faryl Robin Gilston emphasizing, "Just because business hasn't been done this way doesn't mean it shouldn't be done this way" when discussing sustainability and equity in fashion.
You can find us on WCVB Channel 5 News in an episode of the Chronicle about recycling and reuse of all kinds of materials, including textiles.
Our team was honored to dress six United Nations ambassadors from the European Union Delegation to the United Nations for a sustainable fashion show this week in New York. We’re thrilled to be able to demonstrate that secondhand fashion is fashionable, economical, and environmentally friendly.
