WHY PARTNERING WITH VANISH?
Do you know some of the reasons why Australians throw away their clothes⁵?
There are so many stains you can get from just living: cooking stains, grass stains, blood stains… If stains don’t get removed from clothes, we might throw these clothes away⁵.
As clothes lose their bright colours, we tend to get rid of them⁵
When your white outfits become yellow due to perspiration, long-term storage or use of deodorants, we might think of throwing them away⁵.
When a bad odour appears and persists on fabrics, we tend to discard them⁵.
VANISH PLEDGED TO HELP TACKLE THE TEXTILE WASTE ISSUE BY EMPOWERING AUSTRALIANS TO PROUDLY HELP EXTEND THE LIFE OF THEIR CLOTHES TO HELP DIVERT THEM FROM LANDFILL.
Vanish Gold Multi Power contains our superior Vanish Oxi Advance formulation. Not only do they remove stains in a cold wash, but they also remove odours in soaking^ and work as an antibacterial soaker. Additionally, our White powder helps keep your whites white* even after 50 washes, while our Pink range helps prevent colour transfer^^!
^^which may occur in a hot wash (60°C)

WHAT IS HELP #MAKETEXTILEWASTEVANISH?
It’s a commitment to help educate about prolonging the life of products and help ensure that when they reach their end of life, they don’t end up in landfill.
There is a lack of awareness of the gravity of the textile waste crisis in Australia – Australia is the 2nd largest consumer of textiles per person in the world, however, 40% of Australians believe we rank between 6th – 12th.⁵
Donation may not keep textiles out of landfill – 83% of Australians donate unwanted or damaged clothes to charity, however, 14% of all charity donations end up in landfill.⁶
Vanish Napisan and UPPAREL are working together to help make it easier for you to recycle your old textiles. We’ve got some amazing things planned and can’t wait for you to get involved.
WORKING TOGETHER, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP ERADICATE TEXTILE WASTE FROM THE PLANET.
The average Aussie purchases 27kg of new clothing and textiles every year, and discards 23kg into landfill¹. This contributes to the 6000kg of clothing and textile waste being discarded into landfill every 10 minutes², putting Australia as the second largest consumer of textiles per person in the world, after the US³.

To reduce waste and emissions we don’t send you anything to collect your items in. Your textiles can be packaged into ANY type of box (no larger than carry-on luggage) — a food delivery box, grocery box or moving box would work! You can also pack your items into a durable bag or satchel. As a reference, the package should be approximately 46cm x 41cm x 42cm, however, it doesn’t have to be these dimensions exactly! Please note: The courier cannot collect garbage bags. Check out our suggested packaging video below for ideas!
Have trouble fitting all of your pre-loved clothing and shoes into one box? Not a problem!
You can purchase additional collections HERE!
We can collect textiles Australia-wide!
If you live in a remote or extremely rural location and typically have difficulties with couriers/deliveries, please reach out and we’ll confirm details — email@example.com
This promotional offer is only valid for one free collection per person. If you have more than 10KG of pre-loved clothing to recycle, you can purchase additional collections HERE!

These items are hand-sorted by our dedicated team and passed on to our trusted charity partners, like Save The Children, We Are Mobilise, Djirra, and many more!
The remaining 40% is either repurposed by local designers and makers or transformed into our revolutionary material, UPtex! Which is not only entirely recycled but also completely recyclable at its end of life.
