Giving back to those most in need is something Monika has been doing for over five years now since she began her company, Give back box. On a mission to help homeless people get the essential pieces of clothing while helping keep things like clothing, textiles, and boxes out of landfills, she thought of a business concept where she turned recycling and clothing the less fortunate into a company. Backed by organizations like Overstock, Amazon, Loft, REI, Levi’s, Asics, Ann Taylor, Bon-Ton, Viva Terra, Ecru, Bonobos, Scrubs & Beyond, eBags, Lou & Grey and Cherry Mad, Monika’s company has truly created a new method of waste diversion while helping connect thousands of people in need with donations from all around the United States.
