Textile Recycling

Let’s help each other move mountains, not make them.

501,000 tonnes of textiles are discarded into Australian landfills annually. Keep your socks out of landfill by sending them to us.

The Process.

Here’s how it works…

Purchase a compostable satchel for $15 and send us your old socks (Australia only). We accept up to 500g which is roughly equivalent to 10 pairs or 20 single/odd socks. If you’re unsure of how many to include we recommend giving the satchel a quick weigh before sending it off!

Please ensure you wash them before sending them to us! We cannot accept unclean socks for recycling.

When we receive your satchel, our team will sort through them to pull out any that we can reuse. These socks will be industrially laundered and prepared for donation to those in need.

Any socks that can’t be reused will be prepared for recycling! Suitable long fibres (many cottons) can be used to create new yarn. Fibres that are not suitable can be made into non-woven materials, such as insulation!

You’ll also earn a $15 store credit for your first return! Put this towards a fresh set of MANRAGS and instantly refresh your top drawer.

It’s THAT easy to begin reducing our collective impact on landfill.

Got clothes and shoes you need to get rid of too?

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, damaged or unwanted items and we’ll prepare them for reuse and recycling!

But wait, it gets even better!

It only costs $25 to send us up to 10kg, and you score this back in credit! We’ll collect them from your front door so you don’t have to leave the house! AND we’re the only people who accept old shoes for reuse and recycling! Talk about a WIN!
