    So Glad I Ordered Bags!

    I ordered two bags and they each held a lot. I was finally able to declutter socks, underwear, and some old tshirts. I hadn’t gotten rid of the items because I hate the thought of throwing material in the trash. I’m ordering more bags because I’m ready to recycle more items. Thank you!

    This product works great

    I think the Retold Recycling Bag is easy to use. Knowing that professional sorters will pull donatable items and recycle everything else makes this a worry free experience. I’ve recommended Retold on a Reddit Decluttering thread and people were so happy to learn about Retold. Keep up the good work and stay patient while my bag slowly fills up.

    Solo Bag

    I felt good about recycling clothes that weren’t good enough to donate. The bag appeared small, but I was able to put a lot in it, including a bed sheet and a large sweater. I will definitely buy another bag soon.

    Wish the bag was a little bit bigger for the small size

    Easy and kind of fun

    I was thrilled to fill the bag with ugly old clothes! I included a few pairs of underwear that had resided in the back of my friend's drawer for decades. It worked well!
