Wrangler x Upparel

Reuse. Repurpose. Recycle. Receive a $25 reward. As we take steps towards a better future, we've partnered with Upparel to reduce our impact on textile waste & landfill.

Textile waste needs radical intervention now!

Did you know that Australians purchase 27kg of new textiles each year and then discard around 23kg into landfill—annually. This means that as a country, we’re discarding over 6,000kg of textile and clothing waste every 10 minutes. If we don't act now, by the year 2032 you will be able to cover the entire surface of Australia in disregarded textiles

What can we do to help benefit the next generation? 

Have 10kg of your old, unwanted clothing collected for just $25, and receive a $25 Online store credit to spend at Wrangler Jeans. Book your collection and find more information about UPPAREL HERE.

What happens to  my unwanted textiles? 

Currently 65% of items that Upparel is receiving are in new or fit-for-wear condition and are prepared to be passed onto epic Australian partners, such as Save the Children, Sacred Heart Mission, St Kilda Mums and Ready Set Australia. The remaining 35% are assessed for their suitability to be upcycled into new items or recycled into new materials. 

Nothing will end up in landfill. 

By implementing their philosophy of reuse first where possible, then upcycle when necessary, UPPAREL will ensure that nothing is ever sent off-shore or dumped in landfill.

You’ll have a positive impact. 

For every 1kg of textiles you divert from landfill, you’ll be preventing 3-4kg of greenhouse gases from polluting the atmosphere.
