Recycle your clothes and receive Klow vouchers



Today, more than 100 billion items of clothing are consumed worldwide. This unreasonable consumption has dramatic consequences for the environment.. It is in this context that in February 2020 France promulgated the anti-gaspi law for a circular economy and set itself the objective of increasing the recycling of clothing by 60 thousand tons per year by 2022.
Indeed, increasing the share of collected and recycled clothing volumes is a major challenge to enable the emergence of a circular fashion, a mandatory passage point to complete the loop of ethical, responsible and sustainable fashion.

 

To achieve this ambitious objective, we believe that we must use as many levers as possible and, in particular, involve brands, fashion retailers and consumers alongside the players in the sorting and recycling sector.

We have therefore decided to partner with Redonner to allow you to give and give a second life to your old clothes in exchange for vouchers on Klow. With Redonner, all your donations of clothing are part of the regulated sorting and recycling process and contribute to social and solidarity actions.

How do I recycle clothes with Giving Back? 

Giving Back takes back all your clothes, underwear, accessories, regardless of their condition (even torn) and brands as long as they are clean. 
Then simply drop off the clothes at one of the 15,000 collection points you have chosen in advance. Then validate your donation on your account to receive your Re points. 
After confirmation of your donation, your account is immediately credited with "RE points" (2kg = 20 RE points = 1 reward) which are redeemable for vouchers and discounts on Klow. 

How do I validate my donations?

To take advantage of your ROE points, you must complete the procedure explained below :

- Take a photo of your clothing bag in front of the chosen collection point,
- Send the photo by email to redonner@redonner.fr, or by message on Instagram (@redonner.fr),
- 24 hours after your RE points will be credited.

Once your account has been credited, click on the "discover rewards" button to access the discounts offered by Klow on your next purchases.

    How do ROE points work?

    RE points reward you for recycling clothing, linens and/or shoes. 2 kilos of clothing = 20 RE points = 1 reward.

    What products can I send for clothing recycling?

    - Clothing

    - Underwear

    - Household linen

    - Shoes

    - Small leather goods (handbag and wallet)

    What is the minimum and maximum weight of clothes I can send?

    You can send donations between 2 and 10 kilos to get your RE points and benefit from vouchers and discounts on Klow. 

    How do I weigh the bag of clothes to be recycled?

    Use a scale and put it on or in weigh yourself directly with the bag in your hands and make the difference in your weight. 

    What happened to the clothes I sent?

    Absolutely all the clothes are collected by companies or associations of the sector that are ECO TLC conventioned. They are sorted by hand to be resold to second-hand or textile recycling companies.

    Your donations of textiles thus make it possible to finance the charitable actions of associations or the return to employment of people in difficulty or in a precarious situation.

    With regard to outlets, the objective is to maintain a 95% recovery rate (i.e. to give new life to more than 95% of the clothing collected). For textiles that cannot be carried forward (~50%), they enter the recycling stream to be cut, shredded or crushed and transformed into rags, insulation, new clothing or secondary raw materials.

    The remaining 5% will be energetically recovered into solid recovered fuel, which consists of making fuels from the recovered material. 

    Where are the collected clothes sent?

    The objective is to highlight a short circuit and to put the clothes back on the French market or in neighbouring countries.

    What does ECO TLC stand for?

    Approved in 2009 by the public authorities, Eco TLC relies on all stakeholders in the Textiles, Household Linen and Footwear (TLC) sector, from designers to recyclers, to carry out its public interest mission. It acts as a "link weaver" to place this sector in a partnership dynamic of progress and value creation: to set up an innovative and sustainable model, a driving force for activity and economic, social and environmental performance.
