    When I started I got 3 bags. Then my next quarterly subscription arrived with only 1 bag so I asked them why only one bag? They said that’s all you get with the quarterly subscription. Needless to say I canceled. 😡

    Great solution

    I appreciate that retold takes all bits and fabrics. Much better to put the fingers back to work instead of just hitting the landfill.

    Best Way to Get Rid of Old Clothes!

    Three bags delivered 4 times a year. I’ve been able to get old clothes, fabric remnants, and rags. Keeps me from stockpiling fabric items I hate to throw away. Thank you for this great idea!

    Worth using but needs work

    Prior to using retold I was using For Days Take Back Bags and the Knickey recycling service for underwear since For Days wouldn’t take them. These were both great services but I tried out retold because they would take all textiles. Also, For Days used to imply that they did not donate any usable textiles so I had to separate out stuff that I thought was still good to donate myself. Since then, For Days has updated their service to take all types of textiles and they do donate and resell the good stuff so functionally there’s no difference between these two services. I like the subscription model of Retold and the smaller bags because I don’t have to store all the textiles until the huge For Days bag is full, but overall I am not 100% satisfied with the Retold service.

    Pros: subscription so I don’t have to think about it, smaller bag means I get rid of piled up textiles sooner, bags are compostable, take any textiles.

    Cons: I haven’t had a problem with the bags ripping but they do seem fragile. The bags are translucent so I’m uncomfortable sending things like underwear. Bags are expensive for the size compared to $20 for the huge For Days bag which I also get back entirely as shopping credit. Rewards are fun but discounts aren’t better than you get as a new customer and most are for first order only. I never got a delivery confirmation for my bags and had to email them to get my rewards.

    I will keep this for the pros, but hope it improves.

    Work In Progress

    It's very difficult, if not impossible, to find local opportunities for textile recycling, so Retold is truly filling a need. It's been a huge relief to have them as an option. That said, the bags are small, so you can't fit much in one, and it is an expensive service. However, I see the company as a work in progress and want to support them in these early stages. Their mission is much needed and so important!
