Clothes Recycling

About Clothes Recycling
The carbon footprint of the UK clothes sector is worsening, as it is driven by the ongoing popularity of cheap and cheerful "fast fashion". Although the amount of clothing being sent to landfill has fallen by 14% from 350,000 to 300,000 tonnes - a staggering amount is still binned rather than recycled. 
The value of unused clothing in wardrobes has been estimated at around £30 billion. It is also estimated £140 million worth of clothing goes into landfill each year. Charities are playing a vital roll in diverting clothing waste going to landfill sites. We feel this is a better solution, as it not only helps thousands of poor people but it also benefits the environment. 

Please don't bin your unwanted clothes.
Donate them to Al-Ain.
  Thank you.

What happens to old clothes at Al-Ain
 
Initially, we began to pack a large number of old clothes and ship them to a remote areas of Pakistan. However, we quickly found that this was a costly exercise and required large amounts of funds. With the high cost and low benefit, this made us realise that we need to take an alternative approach. We also consulted other UK charities and adopted the best practices used in the sector of recycling clothes. Currently, clothes of good quality, which -usually make up a small percentage, are sold in our Charity shop and the remaining clothes are sold to UK based clothes recycling companies. Any funds generated are solely used to promote charity's welfare activities. Therefore, we urge our supporters to use our clothing banks located at over 50 sites around the UK.  Please recycle your unwanted clothes and shoes to support our work. Not only will you give a new life to your old clothes, but you also help save the environment and will get rewarded by Allah (swt) for helping the poor and underprivileged people. 

May Allah (SWT) الله سبحان و تعالىٰ accept our efforts and our supporter's donations. May Allah (SWT) reward everyone here and in the hereafter.

Al-Ain Distributes Clothes Amongst Poor Families                                                     

Our clothes distribution initiative is still continuing but in a different form. We no longer send clothes overseas. We are working together with another organisation Akhuwat, who distribute new wearable clothes to poor families in many remote areas of Pakistan, Azad Kashmir and Bangladesh.
