The report also shows that 66% of UK consumers buy or are given pre-owned clothes. The research indicates a willingness to buy more pre-owned if a wider range was available. This is Click Collection’s aim for their online multicharity clothes shop. Already providing a national clothes collection and online sales service for several charities, the range in the online shop is expanding daily.
Click Collection’s spokesman said: “The WRAP report supports our aim to change charity clothes recycling for good. Our collaborative multicharity online shop will make more high quality pre-owned clothes available to more people throughout the UK, even if they live in the middle of nowhere. And our secure courier collection from home means anyone can fill a bag, pick a charity to support, and have the bag picked up free. Let’s do good, let’s recycle more of those clothes and raise money for charities at the same time”.
