As part of our waste reduction mission, to keep clothes out of landfill, we’ve teamed up with Newlife, a charity dedicated to changing the lives of disabled and terminally ill children across the UK. Designed to protect the planet, their recycling operation gives opportunities to people from all backgrounds and abilities to volunteer and learn new skills.
As part of our waste reduction mission, we’ve teamed up with TerraCycle an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials. This means any excess is reused, recycled or upcycled to ensure it gains a second life.
