Recycling thumbs up to No nonsense for pantyhose take-back

Yes you can recycle pantyhose. I had no idea.

No nonsense will take back any brand of pantyhose. All you have to do is download a mailing label, box ’em up and ship ’em out. (Yeah, you have to pay for shipping, but it’s pantyhose which will make for a very light weight box.)

I’ll admit, until recently I wasn’t one for buying pantyhose in a drugstore.  An emergency run in the stockings on the go lead me to No nonsense, and ever since that is all that I buy. They seem a little stretchier and a little more durable than the hose I was getting from discount department stores.  And they’re cheaper.

Now I’m reading on their website that No nonsense is made in the USA, they recycle nearly 90% of their production waste, plus all of their packaging is designed to be recyclable and contains some recycled content.

I could probably do a little more homework to validate these claims, but they’re not outlandish, and it does make me feel even better about a product that I was already behind.
