TRAID is a charity working to stop clothes from being thrown away. They turn clothes waste into funds and resources to reduce the environmental and social impacts of our clothes.

TRAID does this by providing the UK public with a network of over 1,500 charity clothes banks, home collections, and charity shops diverting around 3,000 tonnes of clothes from landfills and incineration every year. They work in 191 boroughs and districts in the UK supporting local authorities, businesses, schools, and communities towards zero waste.

Clothes are given to TRAID as cast-offs and waste which they transform into high-quality stock for their charity shops. TRAID hand sorts donations at their warehouse in London selecting stock for their shops based on condition, quality, and style. It’s a major process that sees their team sorting, hanging, tagging, pricing, and merchandising around 11,000 garments per week to reuse and resell. The funds they raise in their shops from stopping clothes from being thrown away are committed to global projects improving conditions and working practices in the textile industry.
