      Do you accept items for all seasons?

      Re-Fashion accepts women's clothing from all seasons.

      What happens to unsold donated clothes?

      We are still able to make use of clothes that we are unable to sell, by selling them onto recyclers who find them a new home abroad rather than ending up in landfill.  

      Why recycle?

      The clothing industry has one of the highest impacts on the planet.  High water use, chemical pollution, transport pollution and landfill all add to the impact on our environment.  It is estimated that 350,000 tons of clothing, over 1 billion items of clothing goes into landfill in the UK every year. 

      Which charity does my donated items support?

      Currently Re-Fashion has joined forces with Breast Cancer Care and Make-A-Wish® UK. The plan is to get more charities on board so you can choose the cause your donated clothes support.

      At the end of each month we will make a payment to Breast Cancer Care and 

      Make-A-Wish® UK for the items that have sold.  

        How much does the charity get from my donation?

        The higher the value of the item sold, the more the charity gets.

        Payment is as follows:

        1. £00.00 - £40       - 20%

        2. £40.01 - £100     - 40%

        3. +£100                  - 60% 

         

        Can I choose a charity to donate to? 

        Not yet, although we want to bring as many charities on board as possible.  It will allow you to pick your favourite charity big or small and it will allow the 167,000 charities that don’t have the resources or cash to be able to raise much needed income from the sale of the clothes you donate.   

        How do I donate my clothes?
