Online Clothing Bank

We’re delighted to be the first retailer to launch an Online Clothing Bank, allowing our UK customers to donate for a discount. We know that updating your wardrobe tends to leave those older styles thrown to the side, unwanted and unused. So, we’ve come up with a charitable and sustainable solution where our UK customers can donate via our Online Clothing Bank, in partnership with The Salvation Army.

 

How can I donate?

2. Print your returns label and attach to the front of your parcel (we recommend reusing our packaging for this if possible) and head to your nearest drop off point.

3. Check your emails for a special discount code once you’ve dropped off your donation.

Why is this important?

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on many sectors but particularly charities, with 28% of people cutting their donations to charity since the start of the crisis. By launching this initiative, we’re aiming to make a change and support this important charity.

We’re also pushing to increase our ongoing sustainability project. By joining this initiative we’re doing our bit to combat the throwaway fashion crisis that sees more than 336,000 tonnes of clothing end up in landfill each year.

 

 

What is an online clothing bank?

Instead of physically going to a charity shop, you can click the link below, generate a free returns label and send your donations straight to The Salvation Army via DPD. Fuss free, helping charity and a much more sustainable way of clearing out your wardrobe!

 

 

Why the Salvation Army?

These generous donations will change lives as the profits received from the resale will be donated to The Salvation Army to continue to fund the vital charity work they do throughout the U.K. The Salvation Army provides specialist support for survivors and potential victims of modern slavery, shelter for those experiencing homelessness and so much more. As the largest charity-owned textiles collector in the U.K.

The Salvation Army’s trading arm (SATCoL) repurpose over 60,000 tonnes of second-hand textiles. SATCoL deliver a message of hope through sustainable efforts and develop strategies to help protect the planet, one donation at a time. Your donations can be a part of continuing to create change, so far we've raised £3,000+ from previous donations!

 

 

What can I donate?

Preloved clothing, shoes and accessories from any brand! 

 

 

What difference do my donations make?

The total amount of clothing collected, reused and recycled by SATCoL each year is the equivalent of 47,000 households' average yearly waste. As well as this, clothing manufacturing uses a staggering amount of water. But, through SATCoL’s reuse and recycling scheme, the equivalent of 160 million bathtubs of water can be saved each year. 

Lastly, SATCoL prevents over 235,000 tonnes of greenhouse gasses from entering the atmosphere each year thanks to their reuse and recycle scheme. This is the equivalent of the emissions generated, on average,  from 120,000 cars every single year.

 

Note: this is for UK customers only.
