Refashionable has launched a new clothing collection service for people who are short on time and storage space. The free service is aimed at customers who wish to raise funds for their favourite charities but do not have time to sell their clothes online or to deliver them to a charity shop. Collection is free and can be arranged for any time including evenings and weekends. Refashionable processes, photographs and advertises the items to maximise the selling price and upon sale 50% plus Gift Aid (where applicable) of the sales proceeds will be donated to a UK registered charity of the customer’s choice.

Collection can be arranged by e-mail: collection@refashionable.com or by phone: 07917824203

About Refashionable:

Refashionable (www.refashionable.com) was founded in 2008 as a useful and practical way for customers to reduce their style miles and the overall environmental impact of the clothing industry and to generate revenue for UK charities.

Refashionable is an online store for recycled clothes, footwear and accessories. Customers can buy and sell good quality used items quickly and securely online, while donating some or all of the proceeds to charities of their choice.

Refashionable is also an information hub that encourages garment recycling with videos on wardrobe customization, clothing care and repairing hints and tips such as how to sew on buttons, mend holes, fix hems and how to embellish their clothes. Members are also encouraged to send in their own videos, hints, tips and recycled creations to share and show off their own skills to other users.

In today’s economic climate making the most of your wardrobe and looking after the clothes you already have to ensure that they last longer is essential in making your money go further.

Refashionable is aimed at people who enjoy buying and wearing the latest fashions and who may have a large collection of unwanted or unworn clothes at the end of each season.

The Refashionable.com website launched in late 2008 and is the brainchild of former footwear buyer Christine Walker, who says:

“There’s a huge amount of pollution and CO2 emissions caused by the production and transportation of clothing and footwear to the UK from other countries. The UK's fashion carbon footprint is massive and buying organic or fair trade is not enough to counteract this. The Refashionable.com website is a place where people can buy from a local source and also learn how to refashion the clothes they already own and help them prolong the life of their clothes by caring for them properly. Consumers can also donate all or a portion of sales proceeds to any UK registered charity.”
