Cotton Traders customers are now able to return their unwanted clothing will go to The Salvation Army. The scheme allows customers to register their clothing donation online, package it and take it to a local parcel drop-off point. Six items per package are accepted.
Kate Johnstone, campaign & communications manager for Cotton Traders, said: “The take-back scheme felt like a natural extension of our values, giving our customers a chance to donate unwanted items to this amazing organisation that’s doing its bit to help those most in need.
“We want to support our customers with their sustainable clothing choices, offering organic and recycled products,” she explained.
Cotton Traders future plans include establishing a solar power farm at its distribution centre in Nottingham, to enable the premises to run on 100 per cent solar power.
Other retailers working with SATCoL to help redirect pre-loved clothing towards charity and new owners – and not landfill – include John Lewis and Oh Polly.
