Farfetch has partnered with second-hand clothes donation venture Thrift+, giving customers access to a free collection service for unwanted items.
Thrift+ will photograph the items and resell them online. Of the money raised, a third will go to the customer’s chosen charity, a third back to the customer as Farfetch credit and the remaining third will help with the running costs of the service. People will also have the choice to donate their credit value to the charity.
"We know our consumers would like an easy way to clear their wardrobes of unused items, and at the same time, they would like to feel positive about it,” says Thomas Berry, Director of Sustainable Business at Farfetch.
“Thrift+ x Farfetch links our customer base with an innovative service that improves the donation experience and has a positive impact by giving good quality clothes another useful life and supporting multiple charities."
