UPPAREL

For The Next Generation

Australia’s leader in textile recovery and recycling.

The UPPAREL Mission

Textile waste needs radical intervention now! At UPPAREL we’re stepping up to lead the change and demonstrating sustainability equals success.

Recycle up to 20 boxes

Recycle over 400 kg

Conscious individuals and businesses send us their unwanted textiles through our online clothing collection and clothing donation bins. Keeping these valuable textiles out of landfill.

Once the textiles arrive every item is meticulously sorted and graded to identify a suitable recovery channel such as reuse, repurpose, or recycle.

Many of the textiles we receive are still fit for wear. We offer this clothing to any charities, social enterprises and non-for-profits. They can come, take what they need and go make an impact with it.

Where textiles are not fit for wear, we begin our recycling process. The most common outcome is to turn textiles into our revolutionary material, UPtex. Which can be used for packaging, signage, homewares, and more!
