Stop sending unwanted clothes to Africa

Unwanted clothes are hurting economies in Africa and elsewhere. Countries in Africa manufacture a rich, unique and diverse range of garments suited to their environments, cultures, climate and body types.

The multitude of unwanted clothes sent to Africa on a daily basis have destroyed this way of life and ended jobs in textile and clothing manufacture for local people.

Moreover, by sending unwanted clothes to Africa, you are aiding and abetting brand names (many of which are unethical) and helping those brands avoid responsibility for the wasteful consumption they generate and profit from.
