Did you know you can get paid to help save the planet?

Why not start a community textiles recycling initiative to raise funds?

Pre-loved – Re-claimed – Re-purposed – Upcycled – Salvaged – Regenerate – Recycle.

Call it what you will, it all helps to keep our everyday items such as clothing, shoes and household textiles out of landfill where they will do more harm than good. Recycling gives us that feel-good factor and it comes with several satisfying reasons why:

  1. Environmental benefits: Textile recycling reduces the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfill overflowing sites, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve natural resources.
  2. Economic benefits: Jobs are created and incomes generated for local communities. It also reduces the cost of waste management for municipalities and businesses.
  3. Social benefits: Low-income families and communities can access clothing and other household textiles, and it can also help support charitable organisations that distribute clothing to people in need.
  4. Energy conservation: Textile recycling reduces the need for new textiles to be produced, which saves energy and resources that would otherwise be used in the manufacturing process. Some materials can take up to 200 years to decompose.
  5. Innovation and creativity: New ideas are generated in the fashion and textile industries, as designers and manufacturers find new ways to use recycled textiles and create new products.
  6. Overall, textile recycling is an important component of a sustainable, circular economy that values waste reduction, resource conservation, and social and economic development.

By helping us to keep clothing, shoes and household textiles out of landfill you can support our mission to help the environment and slow down the harmful effects of landfill use. All you need to do is install one of our recycled clothing bins FREE of charge. We will even pay you up to £400 per tonne for your reusable textiles donations to help your local community projects or chosen charity.  We will brand the bin with your organisation’s logo and brand colours and we take care of everything; artwork, installation, emptying, cleaning and paying you!

By installing one or more of our bins in your community will really make a positive difference to our environment.

  • Reduce air pollution: Landfills release methane gas, which is a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. They also release other pollutants into the air, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia, and hydrogen sulphide.
  • Minimise water pollution: Groundwater and surface water can become contaminated with toxic chemicals and pollutants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, and solvents. This can harm aquatic ecosystems and pose a risk to public health.
  • Prevent soil contamination: Toxic chemicals that are absorbed into the soil can harm plants and wildlife and reduce soil quality. The destruction of this land could prevent future agriculture or conservation use. They can also destroy or disrupt natural habitats and ecosystems.
  • Stop wasting resources: Landfill sites represent a waste of resources that could be recycled, composted, or reused. They are harmful to the environment because they release pollutants into the air, water, and soil, destroy natural habitats, and represent a waste of valuable materials.
