Since pioneering a digital textile recycling program earlier this year, we’ve been able to establish some amazing partnerships with likeminded brands (check them out here!).
These partnerships ensure that we can have an even greater impact on reducing textile waste and give even more items a second life through up-cycling, repurposing and recycling initiatives.
Lowes x MANRAGS
Lowes is a leading Australian menswear, young menswear and schoolwear retail chain and our partnership with them is already off to a flying start, saving more than 3,584kg of old and dormant stock from ending up in landfill! These items, which are often brand new, are sorted by our Melbourne team and prepared for their second life, where they can be passed onto our charity partners or repurposed into new items.
UNIFIED Music x MANRAGS
UNIFIED, formed in Melbourne AU, provides a range of services including artist management, recorded music, publishing, live events and merchandise to a diverse roster of local and international artists. Through our partnership, UNIFIED will be providing us with all dormant merchandise left over from music festivals, gigs and concerts. These items will be repurposed into new products or recycled into new materials, saving them from landfill!
LUSH Cosmetics x MANRAGS
For more than 20 years, LUSH has been creating fresh handmade cosmetics for customers all over the world. And to make their beloved products they use tonnes of muslin cloths in production. Rather than discarding these, they will now be sent to us to be recycled into new materials – further cementing LUSH as leaders in sustainable manufacturing practices (including NO animal testing) 😍
