Folded clothes on a chair

Instead of sending items to landfill when you stop using them, buy-back schemes allow you to return clothing to the company and receive a credit for new clothing in return.

The average garment gets 5 wears before its discarded.



  • Reduces fashion waste and increases resource use
  • You receive credit back to use on future purchases


  • Not all items returned will be able to resold or recycled
  • Requires quality control to ensure items aren't damaged
