Got worn-out clothes and shoes with no place to go? Well we’ve got the answer…

After the success of our sock recycling initiative we’ve decided to tackle ALL clothing items, and shoes too. Now you can send us your old or damaged items and we’ll prepare them for reuse and recycling!

Did you know that in 2019 we launched the world’s first sock recycling initiative to reduce the 501,000t of textiles that were being dumped into Australian landfills annually? In just 5 months we were able to divert over 13,000kg of socks from landfill and completely reverse our own impact on textile waste!
So why not join us and help us achieve even MORE!?

Clear out your wardrobe and we’ll take care of the rest…

On average, Australians purchase 27kg of new textiles each year and then discard around 23kg into landfill — annually. To put that into perspective, that’s a massive 80% of your purchases for the year tossed into the trash. And of that number, around two-thirds are manmade synthetic/plastic fibres that may never breakdown.

Armed with this knowledge we encourage you to clear out your wardrobe sustainably by sending your unwanted, old and damaged items to us! We’ll prepare them for a second life and you can rest easy knowing that you’re helping to reverse the impact these items have on our planet when they sit in landfill.

Hot tip: Every single kilogram you send us for reuse or recycling will prevent 3 — 4kg of greenhouse gasses polluting the air we breathe!

When we work together we can achieve some pretty remarkable things!

What’s happening now:

6,000

Australians currently discard approximately 6,000 kilograms of fashion and textile waste into landfill every 10 minutes.

1.2

Globally, the fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry after the oil and gas industry and contributes 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon toward greenhouse gas emissions every year (more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined).

How we’re making a difference:

13,280

We’ve already diverted over 13 tonnes of socks from landfill, seeing us able to completely reverse our own impact on textile waste! Now we’re expanding to offer a solution to keep ALL clothing and shoes out of landfill.

3-4

For every single kilogram you send to us for reuse and recycling you will prevent 3—4kg of greenhouse gasses polluting the air we breathe! Send us 10kg of unwanted items and keep 13—14kg of greenhouse gasses out of our atmosphere!

Together, we can keep clothes and shoes out of landfill.

Got more questions? We’re happy to answer them!

What items do you accept for reuse and recycling?

We can accept all of your old, worn or damaged clothing items — think jeans, t-shirts, socks and pairs of shoes! We can even accept fabric off-cuts and textiles!
The only thing we can’t accept are underwear and bras, so please don’t send them (or we’ll have to turf them into the bin and that’s the last place we want to send your items!).

Are there any items I CAN'T send?

We cannot accept unwashed items for reuse or recycling, so please ensure all items are clean and dried before sending! Shoes must be in pairs — please don’t send single shoes.
We also cannot accept bras and underwear at the moment, so please don’t send them.

How many items can I send you?

When you book your collection you are provided an allowance of up to 10kg. Your items must be packaged into a box or satchel sized no larger than carry-on luggage — 56cm x 36cm x 23cm.

How should I package my items?

Your items can be packaged into anything. Think inside the box — a wine box, food delivery box or grocery box would work! You can also put your items into a package or satchel if you have packaging from an online order you would like to reuse.

Please ensure it weighs no more than 10kg and is sized no larger than carry-on luggage (56cm x 36cm x 23cm).

Do I need a printer to participate?

Yes — you will need access to a printer so that you can print off the label we email you to stick to your box or package!

If you do not have a printer at home then you can print from an Offiiceworks. Find your local Officeworks here.

Do you collect from all areas in Australia?

We sure do! Our team of couriers are at the ready — including our own couriers along with our partners Sendle (Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service), Australia Post and Pack & Send!

How do I score my $25 credit?

You’ll receive this via email after you register your collection, and you can spend it on any MANRAGS product*.
