I thought that this was an interesting program for a retailer. I see that there is a store in Seattle..I'll have to check it out.

Do any of the other higher end companies do this?

Patagonia has a recycle program and has for more than a decade now been producing a line of synthetic outdoorwear from recycled materials.

I like Patagonia's reduce/repair/reuse/recycle/reimagine strategy. They have services avialable to repair your Patagonia clothing and they have a set-up where you can sell your own used Patagonia clothing in their storer and on ebay.

25 years ago when I worked for Hanna Andersson, they would give you a discount on your next order when you returned their used clothes. It was called 'Hannadowns' not sure if they still do it

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Not clothing but a local running store will take your worn out running shoes for recycling. The soles become part of the new stuff they use on playgrounds. Funny, when I was growing up play ground were either paved with asphalt or had sand under the more "dangerous" equipment like swings and monkey bars. Somehow we all grew up without permanently injuring ourselves
