You may have heard recently of the shwopping campaign launched by Marks and Spencer and Oxfam – as members of the clothes recycling industry ourselves, and with our own strong associations with charity (read more about our support of St Mungo’s here, and in upcoming articles) we think this is a great idea and enthusiastically support Joanna Lumley in her promotion of it.
If you’re interested in this scheme, but would rather sell than shwop, then request a bag or a collection and return your clothes to us at Return to Earn. Your unwanted fashion will find a fantastic new home with people in less affluent nations and you will earn some money to spend wherever you like! Instead of looking for your nearest shwop-drop, simply arrange a collection from your home and have your money delivered to your PayPal account – you don’t even need to leave the house.
There are loads of ways to recycle your clothing, to give a little back, and to get a little yourself. So take advantage of one of these great services and clear your wardrobe today!
Recycling clothes gives people in developing nations access to affordable fashion whilst reducing the environmental impact of the textile industry.
