How to reuse or recycle your clothes?
Reuse or recycling!
We know it is not easy, and sometimes we can find ourselves stuck in this process. No worries, we are here to help you to find the best way to recycle your clothes.
Where to recycle your clothes?
Recycling clothes collection points
In most cities, you can find containers or centers dedicated to waste management and recycling. Collection points to recycle clothes are actually not that rare. If you haven’t spotted any in your neighbourhood, you can always Google it to find the closest one.
Don't leave unusable clothing into collection boxes. You can leave them for example Recci-boxes in Southern Finland. The EU countries will be obliged to collect textiles separately by law by 2025, and there is a plan to start collecting textile waste in Finland already earlier.
Isn’t it lovely to make someone happy by giving the clothes you don’t wear anymore? We hope you cherish your belongings and especially your clothes, and take good care of them because when you do, you prolong their lifespan and your old clothes can become someone else’s treasure. Here are a few examples of charities where you can donate your clothes: Red Cross, Hope Ry
Second hand shops
This is a convenient way to give your clothes a second chance, because in some places you can sell them. Instead of throwing away clothes you no longer use, many places offer a chance to to sell them. If one place refuses to sell your clothes, ask around to find a thrift store, where you can either get a table to sell your old clothes or have the store buy them from you.
Bringing them back to the shop where you bought them when it’s possible
We can be happy about the fact that shops are embracing recycling and supporting a more circular model. Still there are challenges in recycling of clothes due to huge amounts and poor quality. If you would like to learn more about these challenges, we recommend watching for example this document Käytetyn vaatteen jäljillä (in Finnish).
