Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time. We are sorting our waste at home already separating plastic, glass, paper and general waste, it’s time to do much more with textile as it lags behind of other material streams.
Pink Elephant Group offers extra and extended services to individual members of public, local communities, schools, charitable and commercial organisations through arranging various textile collection and re-use schemes.

How does textile reuse work?
Textile banks, schools, nurseries, local convenience shops and house collection are just some of the ways and places we collect from around the UK.
We provide a professional and efficient service through collaborating with local authorities, government agencies, and private businesses. Collected textiles are meticulously sorted, then graded for further re-use and supplied, depending on quality, to end users. We strive for the highest quality reusable products and apparel that can be reused rather than disposed of in landfills since we focus on reuse.
Textile recycling helps save the environment by reducing waste at landfills and offers people across the world with affordable apparel. Textiles make up about 3% of household waste, and more than 1 million tonnes of textiles are sent to landfill each year, according to estimates. Second-hand clothing sellers in the UK and throughout the world buy good quality material that can be reused. Garments that have reached the end of their useful life are recycled into industrial wipers and cloths, mattress filler, insulation, and new fibres.
By giving your unwanted clothing for reuse, you are assisting people in the UK and overseas to purchase products that they might otherwise be unable to purchase. You are also:
- Giving old clothes a second chance
- Contributing to the Circular Economy
- Preventing textiles from ending up in landfills
- Contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- Using less energy
