Our mission is to stop the waste of donatable items. About 26 billion pounds of clothing ends up in the trash every year. Items that could be donated are simply being thrown away. One in three people who don’t donate items say it’s because it’s easier to throw things away. GiveBack provides a solution. Unlike other apps, GiveBack allows for pick-ups. Donors schedule a pick-up of their donatable items and organizations process the donors request in a simple, efficient system. GiveBack increases donations by making the process of donating easier, stopping our world’s evergrowing waste.
