HOW IT WORKS
You put your old clothes and shoes in our collection bins. Several times a week, we collect the clothing from the bins. The old textile is brought to our warehouse and is sent overseas. Our customers separate the clothing into different qualitative categories, the ones considered to be in good condition are distributed to second hand stores in a few developing countries where locals are given access to much needed affordable garments.
Lower quality clothing is being sent to not for profit organizations as a pure donation; They on their end deliver the clothes to those in need in countries in Africa and Asia. Small percentage of what is collected goes through the process of recycling giving old clothes a brand-new life and reducing the amount of waste going into landfills.
The clothes go through recycling only if they are in completely unusable condition. With the proceedings from the clothing, we on our end support local charities. This is how the circle is completed and we help each other as well as help our planet stay cleaner.
The Clothes collection ensure:
- A channel that finds new users for clothes and at the same time provides employment opportunities both locally and in developing countries.
- A way to support the development aid work of partner organizations which aim to increase the living standard of people who live in some of the poorest parts in the world
- Prevention of additional pollution by reducing the manufacturing of new clothing. By supporting this opportunity to reuse old garments you help our soil, seas, forests and air to stay cleaner and to preserve the natural habitat around the globe.
