Building a better world for and with children by reusing and recycling old textiles.

We’ve partnered with MANRAGS to have 10kg of your old clothing, linen and shoes collected for only $25, preventing your items from reaching textile landfill by giving them a second life. Plus! For contributing, we’ll give you $10 in credit to spend in-store at one of our op shops.*

*On your first collection only.

Gather up your unwanted items.

Gather up your unwanted clothing, linen and shoes. Ensure clothes and textiles have been given a clean, ready for someone else to use and love. Shoes should be in good condition and be given a quick wipe. No underwear and bra’s please!

What can I recycle?

Let us know when to pick it up!

Pack your items ready for collection in a box or secure package no heavier than 10kg. Parcel must be completely sealed (open boxes and garbage bags cannot be collected). Login to your account and notify us when they are ready for pick-up.

How should I package my items?

We’ll organise the rest…

Our team will book your collection within 48 hours of receiving your request and provide you with a label to attach to your package. A courier from our third-party network will then come to pick it up from your front door. Then we’ll get to recycling!

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.
