We were green thinkers long ago.
When most people were still blue-eyed.
We are modern collectors and sorters and every day we go looking for recyclable textiles, which we can sort into 250 categories. Our long-term experienced workers feel the quality instantly between their fingers. Every month we sort through a good 350 kilograms of textiles from our own clothing containers in North Germany. These pre-sorted articles are exported all over the world according to special requests from resellers. This way many people worldwide have the opportunity to buy and wear used clothes of good quality at affordable prices.
Add to that: when normally 27.000 litres of water is necessary to produce one pair of jeans, by careful textile recycling valuable resources can be saved. One pair of jeans can be recycled nowadays five times and only needs a half a litre of water. And an old net curtain can be put to use in Africa as a valuable fishing net to feed a family.
Items that are no longer wearable are moved by us directly on to the recycling circuit. Where they re-emerge to lead a new life as roofing felt, park seats, isolating material or stylish vases. The rest of the textiles are processed directly into eco-friendly cleaning cloths for industrial use.
