Various multinational retailers have recently partnered with Seattle-based app Stuffstr to aid their efforts in promoting and enabling a circular economy. The app provides a simple interface through which users can manage their ‘library’ of possessions and encourages them to donate, repair or give away their disused or unwanted stuff.
Clothing giants such as H&M and The North Face are using the app to help consumers find local clothing donation sites to recycle their old clothes. These sites will accept all fabrics, textiles and brands and will offer store discounts as a reward.
The app is also capable of automatically importing past and future purchases from Amazon in addition to processing online receipts from over 700,000 retailers.
