Eileen Fisher recycles gently worn clothing


Organic_Cotton_eileenfisher_1.jpgAnyone who wears Eileen Fisher appreciates classic style … Now you can save some green, and tap into some sustainable Fisher style by shopping at Green Eileen in Yonkers, Woodbury Center and Irvington, NY.

Or – give and you shall receive … donate your gently worn Eileen Fisher threads to one of five designated locations whenever you’re ready to pass them along. Receive a tax receipt and $5 EF gift card for donating any pre-loved Eileen Fisher items.

It’s a nicely sustainable closed loop system with an extra good karma kick … Green Eileen helps fund programs for women and girls in our local, national and global communities. To date, the foundation has sold over $500,000 recycled pieces and contributed over $425,000 to programs which support women and girls.
