Wool manufacturer Smartwool has partnered with Material Return™ circularity platform to launch a recycling initiative that collects and deconstructs hard-to-recycle socks, transforming them into new products.
What they accept:
Clean socks only (please) All brands, colors, sizes, and materials welcome (we're not picky) No rolled or paired socks, bags, rubber bands, paper clips (just single socks)
How to get involved:

Hats off to Smartwool for spearheading this significant initiative – especially since we always seem to lose one of our socks!
