Drop it off instead of throwing it away: TALLY WEiJL and TEXAID join forces.
We all have clothes in our wardrobe that we no longer wear… so now TALLY WEiJL is working with TEXAID to make sure you can make a positive imapct with your old clothes. The recycling campaign began on 1st June 2016 with recycling points currently available at our store on Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, and at our store in Marktplatz in Basel (both in Switzerland).
The recylcing programme is planned to be extended to a wider number of stores. Co-founder, Tally Elfassi-Weijl, says "Thanks to the collaboration with Texaid, we can make a contribution to textile recycling and thus close the recycling cycle". As a thank you for their generosity, every customer that donates a bag of unwanted clothes receives a 10% off voucher to spend on their next store purchase in either of the participating stores.
TEXAID was founded in 1978 as a private charity partnership by the Swiss Red Cross, Caritas Switzerland, Winterhilfe Schwiez, Solidar Suisse (formerly Schweizerischer Arbeiterhilfswerk), Kolping Switzerland and HEKS. Each year, the TEXAID Group collects, sorts and recycles almost 1,000,000 tonnes of used textiles, requiring the help of around 1000 employees. TEXAID has an ISO management system certificate and has been awarded the Swiss Climate AG "CO2 Neutral" title in Switerland.
