I think we all agree, don’t we, that we all have too many bloody clothes. Too many that we don’t wear, too many that we pass our hands over in the morning as we’re getting dressed, thinking “No… no – not that.”
That was the fuel behind the whole capsule rant on here – why not open your wardrobe and feel spoiled for choice, rather than thinking “OMG, what an utter car crash. I. Have. Got. Nothing. To. Wear.”
But, meanwhile, an entire industry has sprung up around the clothes that we don’t or can’t wear. We are at clothing crisis point and those slightly at fault (i.e. clothing stores with a high turnover of stuff… looking at you H&M) have in-store recycle and reuse points. Alternatively you can donate to a charity shop.
Or, now, send to Re Fashion, an online-donation portal that promises to donate three times more to charity than charity shops. Their initial charity partner will be Breast Cancer Care.
Re Fashion is also, itself, a shop – (or will be soon when they’ve got enough lovely stuff) – selling all the quality donations at low prices. Anything you donate that doesn’t make the grade gets recycled, not binned to landfill.
Anyway, check them out and order your bag – I’ve got mine!
