Columbia Factory Store (ReThreads Program)

Columbia’s Rethreads program encourages consumers to bring in their used clothing and shoes of any brand in clean, dry condition, to our participating retail stores to be given a new life. Find a Columbia store near you, here.

Garments and footwear that are dropped in ReThreads bins in each Columbia store, will be sent to a textiles processing facility through I:CO, a textile recycling solutions provider.  The products are then sorted, reprocessed, and reused or recycled.  Items that are still wearable find new homes through the second-hand market. Unwearable items are reused for products like cleaning cloths or recycled into fibers for new products such as insulation, carpet padding, stuffing for toys and even new fabrics.
