What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Backpacks, good condition

Backpacks that are in good, sellable condition are accepted for donation at local thrift stores. Check out the local A2 Area Reuse Network.


Recycle Right!

Backpacks must be clean, the zippers must work, and there must be no rips.


Live Zero Waste!

Donating unwanted backpacks is a great way to ensure that they will be reused.
