Is your gently worn Eileen Fisher sweater or dress ready for a comeback? Simply drop it off at any Eileen Fisher retail store from April 20 to 22 to give it a second lease on life. Your garment will be cleaned and resold at Green Eileen, a new concept store in Yonkers, NY, that retails pre-loved Eileen Fisher clothing. Plus, all proceeds from the sales benefit programs that empower women and girls both locally and abroad, including Girls Inc., the New York Women’s Foundation, and Women for Women International.

GREENING EILEEN

Since 2009, Eileen Fisher has collected more than 50,000 garments and raised over $600,000 for its partner causes. Most of the clothing—even a few that date back 30 years!—arrive in serviceable condition, Kerri Devaney, Eileen Fisher’s spokeswoman, tells Ecouterre. But even pieces that can’t be resold has its uses. Green Eileen uses the scraps in its creative workshops, which cover everything from weaving potholder rugs to making rag-paper lanterns. Doing this, Devaney adds, helps divert textiles from the landfill while creating useful new objects.

In addition, Eileen Fisher will offset all carbon emissions from shipping donations to Green Eileen.

If you’re ever in upstate New York, be sure to stop by the Green Eileen storefront, which currently features “Earth Day globes” cobbled together from damaged Eileen Fisher textiles and the company’s Bluesign-certified silks. Green Eileen accepts donations year-round at select Eileen Fisher locations in New York. Can’t make it to a location? You’re also free to send up to five items to Green Eileen (c/o Eileen Fisher) at 2 Bridge St., Irvington, NY 10533.
