dead stock

The season is over but stock levels
are high

As we all know, no one has a crystal ball when it comes to trends. Yet this isn’t consoling when you have overstocks from the past season. Avenue to sell garments on are becoming more difficult and the retailer needs channels so garments don’t end up in landfill. TRA can support recycling avenues that are genuine and transparent. We supply documents of destruction and ask about our options for second life solutions.

Upcycling into
new products

The latest trend in fashion is –
you guessed it, recycled!

We understand how fashion works, we’ve been in it our entire careers. People adore fashion but the ugly side of fashion simply isn’t acceptable anymore. True beauty has its own aesthetic and it is one that is genuine, sustainable and innovative. Recycling to then upcycle into new garments is the way forward for all apparel. Brands that we work with on these processes include:

  • Sheridan
  • Uniqlo
  • Commonry

Take back

Do you responsibly discard
of uniforms?

Being responsible for textile waste reduction means taking back unwanted garments from your customers, we believe that it should be any garments – as long as they are not soiled or contaminated. By doing this your brand is keeping apparel out of landfill and having it processed and reintroduced into the production cycle for new garments made out of recycled yarn. 

If you are interested in having a collection point in your stores and or warehouses, get in touch with us.
