UPDATE FOR MARCH 2021: We’ve been so thrilled by the uptake of this scheme. Sharewear has been overwhelmed by donations, so much so that we need to pause to take stock. If you already have a bag, please do send your donation in. And if you want to order a bag, please do so by February 28. We’ll spend March looking at ways we can continue to run this scheme long term, so hopefully it’ll be back in April. A huge thank you to everyone who has got involved so far – we can’t wait to bring you some stories of your donations and how they really are making a difference to people.
73% of clothing ends up in landfill or incinerated. To get that to zero we need to make it easy not just to recycle but to recycle in a meaningful way
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Sharewear, a charity dedicated to ending clothing poverty who distribute second-hand clothes to the people who need them most.
How our partnership with Sharewear works
When you shop with BAM, you can choose to receive a free postage-paid Sharewear recycling bag so you can send them any clothes you’re finished with. You don’t have to restrict yourself to BAM clothes, you can send any useable item.
When you do, we’ll send you £5 off your next BAM purchase.
If you want to recycle more clothes, you can visit Sharewear’s drop off points or email us ([email protected]) to arrange delivery. These larger donations are at your own cost but as a thank you, we’ll give you £10 off your next BAM purchase.
Please note, we are unable to cover the cost of international postage for the Sharewear recycling bag. If you wish to take part in this scheme, you will need to cover the cost of your own shipping.
