Textile Recycling

Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle

Breaking down the process.

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.

When you send your items to us, they’ll go through our separation process and follow the re-use, repurpose, recycle methodology to determine what happens next.

Reuse

If your items are sent in a suitable condition, then we can donate them to one of our charity partners for someone else to love!

Repurpose

If your items are past their prime, then we’ll work with our recycling partners to turn them into something new, like a tote bag.

Recycle

If your items are damaged, they can be used to create new yarn or shredded and used for things like insulation or stuffing for pet beds!
