What happens to the used bras?
TEXAIDs aim is to recycle textiles and preserve resources as a result. TEXAID achieves a second-hand value between 50 and 65 per cent, well above the European industry average of around 45 to 50 per cent.
Around 30 per cent of the items collected are badly damaged textiles. Around half of these, i.e. 15 per cent, can be made into cleaning cloths that are used for cleaning and polishing.
Another 15 per cent are sent for textile recycling – they are shredded and mixed with other materials to be made into raw materials or transformed into insulating materials.
Only between 5 and 15 per cent of the items collected are textile waste or non-textile materials that cost money to dispose of or are sent for appropriate separate waste treatment.
Where are the used bras sold?
TEXAID sells used clothes and shoes in many of its own second-hand shops. It also exports sorted old clothes and shoes to Eastern and Western Europe and Africa. Unsorted textiles that have been separated from obvious waste are sent to sorting facilities in Italy, Belgium and Eastern Europe.
Do Triumph and TEXAID have any profit with collected garments?
Triumph does not have any profit with collected garments at the shops.Collected garments are handed over to TEXAID who deals with the further steps in the take-back system. Takings from the sale of used textiles help aid organizations to carry out their relief work.
