We buy unsold inventory, prevent it from going into landfill, and distribute it - outside your existing marketplaces - to those in need. We add financial and reputational value to your dead stock.
As anyone in the business knows, the existing ways of dealing with unsold inventory can’t keep up with the new reality of fast fashion. The volumes are too high for jobbers and the glut of short fibre makes recovery unsustainable.
We’ve been in the rag trade for a long time, and like all of us, we’ve been dismayed at the increase in perfectly good clothing being burned or going into landfill (300,000 tonnes last year in the UK alone). We knew there had to be a better way so we’ve spent the past couple of years working out how to make it happen. Two guys in rags is the answer.
We aren’t a giant corporation, we are two guys who’ve focused all our efforts on working out a solution to a universal problem. One that benefits everyone. We’ve built a network of partners who can take any quantity of dead stock (from your stores or your DCs) and dispose of it effectively and ethically
300 THOUSAND TONNES
OF CLOTHING GO INTO
LANDFILLS EACH YEAR
It really is this simple (and complex).
One garbage truck of textiles is wasted every second
We’re here to make money, and we make no bones about it. But we believe that if we’re smart enough we ought to be able to do it in a way that everyone benefits.
Our business model allows us to pay you top price for your dead stock and still get it to the people most in need. Everyone wins - and who wouldn’t want that?
