Eco-Friendly Socks and Clothing Recycling
We send you sustainably-made socks when you want them.
We give you an easy way to get rid of your worn ones: send them back for recycling.
Wear. Recycle. Repeat. Welcome to the Basic Revolution!
Get Great Socks and Reduce Your Waste!
Here are the basic problems we want to solve:
Problem one: you wear your hole-y socks for too long because "omg, didn't I just replace them?"
Yeah, we know you do this. We do it too.
Problem two: you wish you could donate your worn-out basics, but you can’t because eewww!
So you have to throw them out and they end up in a big, hole-y landfill. We do it too.
Time for a revolution? Hole yeah!
This one comes in a box. Which is pretty contained as far as revolutions go.
3-Steps to Be More Sustainable
Receive your box of fresh, sustainably-made, hole-free socks. Relish a moment of sustainable pride.
Use the same box to ship back any worn-out clothing - that can’t be donated - to be recycled! Bye-bye embarrassing landfill waste. Hello second chance for your socks.
Join our community to learn more about sustainable living and the other small, revolutionary changes you can make. Small changes made by many = one big, hole-y impact!
Our goal is to send you all the socks you need for the year, it's convenient and reduces the carbon footprint of the shipping.
Choose from one of our pre-selected boxes or subscribe to custom-build your own box. Every order comes with clothing recycling!
The Environmental Impact of Old Clothing
Most textile waste comes from post-consumer goods (aka the stuff we wear).
In 2015, the US generated 16 million tons of textile waste.
That’s a 275% increase from 5.8 million tons of textile waste generated in 1990. What the sock?!
Only about 15% of the clothing we wear makes it to another human to use or is recycled.
The average American throws out 80 lbs of clothing per year.
Our mission is to help keep textiles out of the landfill. Click here to learn more about textiles waste and how to reduce it.

I just received my first order and I am so excited!
The quality of the socks is better than anything I’ve ever had before.

Once I learned from Basic Revolution just how much of our clothing ends up in the landfill, I was in love with their mission.
The socks are comfy and high quality and the process of sending back my old hole-y ones was super easy.
I get something I need and I'm part of the solution with regard to the environment.
It's a win win, and I'm so glad I signed up!
