Wash. Upcycle. Repeat

Each year, millions of pounds of clothing ends up in landfills - but together we can help change that! Donating, purchasing new-to-you items at a thrift store, and upcycling are some of the easiest ways to help save our planet.

As a leader in clothing care, LG is committed to shining a light on textile waste through LG Second Life - a campaign that inspires others to help give a “second life” to clothing that may otherwise be wasted. Because a second life for our clothing is the first step towards a second chance for our planet.

Over the past year, COVID-19 has affected the clothing donation pipeline due to access challenges, and safety and hygiene concerns. In response, LG has created a wash center equipped with our latest laundry appliance innovation. Here, we’ll clean and sanitize clothing donations and then deliver them to organizations in need of clothing resources.

Why Give Clothing A Second Life?

  • Upcycling is on the Rise!

    It not only contributes to sustainable shopping as a whole, but also serves as art pieces, cultural commentary and a sense of connection.
