Recognized as the second most revenue-generating sales event of the year behind December holiday shopping, Back-to-School sales accounts for a large percentage of annual retail numbers. “In August 2012, 21.0 billion dollars was spent at clothing and clothing accessory stores which accounts for 8.6% of total annual sales, “ says Ian L. Thomas, Chief of Retail Indicators Branch of the U.S. Census Bureau. “Of that $21 billion, 8.5 billion was accounted for back-to-school shopping.”
The Shop and Recycle initiative helps to educate families, moms and those all important “millennial” back-to-school shoppers about the benefits of recycling while providing a convenient point-of-purchase solution for recycling and donating last season’s outgrown and unwanted clothes, shoes, toys and other household textiles.
To date, ATRS has diverted over 155 million pounds from local landfills in its regions and has donated over $4M to worthy charities in the process. Proceeds from this event will support programs and services of our charitable partner, MADD Oklahoma.
ATRS is the fastest growing textile recycler in the U.S. Its socially responsible business model provides free textile recycling solutions for the public, job stimulation for local communities and abroad and much-needed funding for worthy local charities. With branches in 11 markets including Texas, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Atlanta, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado and Southern California, ATRS Recycling is committed to keeping textile waste from local landfills and promoting a greener tomorrow.
