Thrift+ partners with Hush
GAS portfolio company Thrift has partnered with Hush on a new recycle and reuse programme encouraging Hush customers to donate clothing they no longer wear in the name of charity and sustainability.
From 28th January, the new arrangement between Thrift+ and Hush offers Hush customers the opportunity to add a Thrift+ to their basket at checkout, which they can use to donate clothing from any brand, not just Hush clothing.
Thrift+ then resells the clothing donating the proceeds of each sale to their chosen charity. Upon the sale of items, Hush customers will also be rewarded for their contribution with Thrift+ credit and a 10% discount offer on future Hush purchases.
As part of this arrangemnt, all Hush employees will also receive a free Thrift+ bag to donate second-hand pieces from their personal wardrobes.
Hush's founder Mandy Watkins said: "We are excited to announce our partnership with Thrift+ to launch a new takeback service, designed to give a new lease of life to clothes our customers don't wear anymore… and hopefully raise a bit of money for charity at the same time. Extending the life of our products and supporting the growth of the circular fashion movement is a significant part of our sustainability journey at Hush, so this represents an important step."
Thrift+, co-founder & CEO, Joe Metcalfe added: "We are delighted to be partnering with hush to offer an easy, transparent and rewarding way for Hush customers to donate their best second-hand clothes to their favourite charity. This represents our intention to help power the circular fashion economy and divert textile waste from landfill."
