Australasia’s leaders 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 10 boxes

Recycle over 100 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 identified and sorted through to ensure whether it’s fit for wear or unfit for wear. Everything is sorted into 2 categories: reuse and repurpose.

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 a recycling process. The most common outcome is to turn textiles into cushion-like fibre. Which is used as filling for furniture, insulation and more!
