Fundraising with Textile Banks and Bag Collections

Would your school/ Chruch/ Community Centre/ business be interested in getting involved with textile recycling as a way of fundraising?

We provide free clothing banks across the South, helping charities to reach financial and recycling targets as well as offering a useful service to communities and doing something positive for the environment. Clothes can take up to 40 years to decompose and shoes up to 1000 years to break down, but 95% of these can be recycled!

This is a free service; we provide you with a textile bank and pay for every kilo collected!

We empty the bank every 2 weeks and send quarterly emails so you can see how much the bank is raising.

Payments are processed quarterly via BACS transfer.

The textiles we collect are either sent to Eastern Europe or Africa to be used again or converted into insulation materials and industrial cleaning wipes.

The textile banks are designed to go outside, they are 2.20m high, 1.15m deep and 1.15m wide

No space for a bank? No Problem! We also offer bag collections!
If you would like to arrange a one off or regular bag collection, please contact us.

Do you have a site you can put clothing bank(s)?
