So many resources go into manufacturing clothing, when we throw unwanted clothing away, it usually ends up in landfill.
As it breaks down, it contributes to the pollution of our soil and water, which is damaging to our planet,
and therefore damaging to our health & wellbeing.
At Prewear Sustainable Fashion, we recycle unwanted clothing, footwear & accessories at outstanding prices.
Redirecting waste away from landfill, we aim to find every item a caring new owner, who can enjoy the benefits at a fraction of the cost. A philosophy that is wonderful news for our customers and the planet we share.
Profits from Prewear are reinvested to provide Counselling Services & Holistic Therapies for people in our communities.
Due to the Pandemic, many of us are facing difficulties we never would have imagined.
Being able to access support is particularly important for our health & wellbeing.
Please support our worthy cause by becoming a Prewear shopper today!
“Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect humankind.”
Business for good
Our Preloved Sustainable Fashion Store was born from the desire to live in a more balanced world, without creating excess waste, while raising funds to reinvest in people. Prewear is part of A Positive Start, an asset locked Community Interest Company investing in people.
Since 2017 we have followed this belief delivering services both on and off line. By redirecting clothing away from landfill, recycling and rehoming, we create a conscious consumption cycle that benefits everyone. Browse our products and purchase today to join our community of sustainable shoppers.
Caring is in our Jeans
Did you know that a staggering 6 billion pairs of Jeans are made world wide every year?
Just as staggering is the brew of toxic chemicals and hundreds of gallons of water it takes to dye and finish one pair of jeans.
It is estimated that 70 percent of Asia's rivers and lakes are contaminated by the 2.5 billion gallons of wastewater produced by that continent's textile industry.
More than 50% of all clothing is now made from polyester which is essentially a plastic and takes up to 200 years to breakdown in landfill.
An estimated £140 million worth (around 350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK alone every year.
95% of clothing that are thrown away can be either re-worn, reused or recycled. Please recycle or donate your old clothing rather than sending it to landfill!
As a nature-loving preloved sustainable fashion store, we want to encourage our community of shoppers to start and continue a mindful discussion about environmental issues and how we can work together towards global sustainability solutions. Keeping our Earth and its ecosystems healthy is the driving force behind Prewear
Redirecting, Recycling & Reuse, Rehoming & Reinvesting equals the circular economy at its best!
