Time To Turn Our Your Wardrobe?
If you are living in the UK, you could donate your unwanted clothing to support the Aegis Trust. White Rose turns your unwanted clothing back into cash by reselling it in our high street boutique stores.
Just fill in your information here and we will let you know how you can donate wherever you are.
Where to donate?
There are three main ways to donate unwanted clothes and shoes to White Rose
1. Donate at your local White Rose Shop. We currently have shops in and around Nottingham. You can unload outside most of the shops to drop off donations. Please call us i you have any questions regarding donating in-store.
2. You can book a free home collection if you live in/near Nottingham or Manchester. You will need to have at least two large bin liner sized bags of quality clothes to donate. If you have more, that's OK, we will be delighted to collect. Fill in the form below to see if we can collect in your area. More areas are coming soon.
3. Donate at your nearest White Rose clothing recycling bank. We have over 80 locations across the UK, contact us to find out if there is one near you.
What can I donate?
Clothes (Women, men’s and children’s. All styles wanted including designer, high street and vintage)
Accessories (Bags, scarves, jewelry, hats etc)
Linen (e.g. Curtains and Sheets)
What condition should donations be in?
In order to make a real difference from the sale of your unwanted clothing, donations must be in good enough condition to resell. We don’t mind about the fit, style or era. When you are bagging up your donations, just ask yourself if items are in good enough condition to be resold to someone else. If the answer is yes, we definitely want them. If you have some items which are a little worn, that’s fine. If you have some very good quality pieces which are a bit damaged, we may be able to sell it ‘as seen’ or upcycle.
From production to disposal, our clothes have significant and harmful environmental and social costs. In the UK, over 1 million tonnes of textiles are sent to landfill or incinerated every year resulting in increased waste and carbon emissions and a cost to the UK economy of over 80 million GBP per year. For White Rose, the problem of clothes waste goes beyond UK landfill into the fields, factories, homes and mills where our clothes are made. Every piece of wasted clothing has used significant quantities of scarce natural resources like water, oil and land. At the same time, garment manufacturing takes place in very poor countries where labour is cheap and unregulated, and human rights abuses are commonplace.
Every aspect of White Rose's work aims to minimise, improve and transform the impacts of clothes – from stopping clothes being thrown away, to extending the life of clothes in our charity shops through our Green Fashion campaign.
No duvets or pillows
No damaged clothes or shoes. For example, we cannot reuse items which are very worn or have big holes or stains.
