There are many great reasons why clothing banks benefit the environment and to society. As an environmentally friendly alternative to textiles being incinerated, or put into a landfill sites, these materials can be recycled, processed and fed into areas of great need.
Unwanted textiles of any quality can be taken to textile banks dotted around Scotland. You can donate adults and children's clothes, curtains, towels and bed linen, belts, bags, hats and shoes. All textiles collected are exported to Eastern Europe and Africa. Our trained work force of 25 sorters make over 120 grades which are exported worldwide. This generates employment and helps support local business in the developing world whilst providing affordable good quality second-hand clothing to the less fortunate.
