Welcome to Planet Aid - Home of the Yellow Box!

Planet Aid is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that collects and recycles used clothes and shoes and supports development projects in some of the poorest parts of the world. The projects empower people and create momentum to improve health, increase income, aid vulnerable children, train teachers, and enhance the overall quality of life. Our bright yellow boxes can be found across many major metropolitan areas of the United States.
