Is a lot trickier than popping your (alternate) milk bottles in the recycling bin for kerbside pickup each week. This is because there isn’t the infrastructure set up to process clothing and save it from landfill, in addition to the complex nature of clothing; with the majority being mixed fibres, and trims being made from different materials, making it more complex to deconstruct and recycle.
But the good news is
Melbourne based company, Upparel have changed the game with clothing recycling, ensuring clothes that may no longer be worn have their life extended, or if they are truly at end of life they can be recycled rather than going to landfill.
Soon we’ll be offering the option of returning your Amble (and Team Timbuktu) products back to our warehouse to send to Upparel once they’re at the end of life.
But in the meantime you’re able to send your worn out clothes directly to Upparel to recycle them in a few easy steps starting with an online pickup form. Then Upparel will come pick up your old clothing and do all of the hard work sorting and recycling for you; helping us get closer to the next step of circularity. Find out more here.
