Building a better world for and with children by reusing and recycling old textiles.
We’ve partnered with UPPAREL to have 10kg of your old clothing, linen and shoes collected for just $35, preventing your items from reaching textile landfill by giving them a second life. Plus! For contributing, we’ll give you $10 in credit to spend in-store at one of our op shops.*
*On your first collection only.
Here’s how you do it.
Register for collection.
Go online and book your collection. You can send us 10kg of your old textiles for just $35. We’ll send you a $10 voucher to redeem in-store any of our Australian Save Op Shops!
Gather up your unwanted items.
Gather up your unwanted clothing, linen and shoes. Ensure clothes and textiles have been given a clean, ready for someone else to use and love. Shoes should be in good condition and be given a quick wipe. No underwear and bra’s please!
Book your collection.
Now you’re ready to give those unwanted textiles a second life! Simply book your collection through the link in your confirmation email, then print and attach the generated labels to your box(es) and leave them outside for collection. We’ll take care of the rest!
We’ll organise the rest…
Our team will book your collection within 48 hours of receiving your request and provide you with a label to attach to your package. A courier from our third-party network will then come to pick it up from your front door. Then we’ll get to recycling!
On average, Australians purchase 27kg of new textiles each year and then discard around 23kg into landfill — annually. To put that into perspective, that’s a massive 80% of your purchases for the year tossed into the trash. And of that number, around two-thirds are manmade synthetic/plastic fibres that may never breakdown.

Get ready to clear out your wardrobe and we’ll get ready to give your items their second life!
