Recycle your clothes and receive Klow vouchers
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.
How do I recycle clothes with Giving Back?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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?
- Household linen
- 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.
