Unwanted clothes

It happens: sometimes you fall out of love with your former favourites. But before you give your clothes the old heave-ho, have a think about what’s best to do with them.

Old maternity dresses, things your kids have grown out of, even clothes that are torn or stained – whatever you want to get rid of, we’ve got tips on finding places where they can be loved all over again. You might earn some money from it.

Even if you don’t turn your unwanted clothes into cash, you’ll know that someone is giving them a good home. And by keeping them out of landfill, you’ll also be doing the environment a massive favour.

Please read our current guidance on donating and recycling clothes.
