Take back initiative
The LUCKE take back initiative has been launched with the aim to start closing the loop when it comes to our clothes. Any LUCKE apparel will be taken back at the end of its usable life for free and other brand clothing will be taken back for a small fee.
How LUCKE take back initiative works:
- Collect: Drop or ship cleaned items back to LUCKE HQ
- Sort: Each item is checked and analysed and to be sorted into 2 categories: reuse (still fit for wear) and repurpose (not fit for wear).
- Re-use: Many of the textiles we receive are still fit for wear. We remove any logos and offer this clothing to any charities, social enterprises and non-for-profits. They can come, take what they need and go make an impact with it.
- Recycle: Where items are not fit for wear, we break down the textiles into different materials and different fabrics. Removing all hardware and non-fabric items to be individually recycled, we turn the textiles into a super fine cushion-like fibre or cushioning material. From there this fibre can be used again in pillows, insulation, furniture etc. At the end of life these upcycled items can be returned and be recycled again and again.
We can provide branded 120 litre collection bin(s)s to highlight your company's commitment to reducing textile waste.
