UK Charity Clothes All Wrapped Up?

WRAP Report 'Valuing Your Clothes' shows huge UK potential for both recycling and buying more pre-owned clothes. ClickCollection, the multi-charity online clothes shop aims to make both easier and raise money for charities at the same time.
 
July 12, 2012 - PRLog -- A new report by UK Govt-sponsored WRAP (Waste Resources Action Programme) has been welcomed by ClickCollection.co.uk, the multi-charity online clothes shop. The report shows that 30% of clothes in the average wardrobe have not been worn for a year, mostly because they don’t fit. These could be collected free from owners’ homes and donated to charity through Click Collection.
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”.
