Sussan partners with Upparel to repurpose used clothing

Fashion retailer Sussan has partnered with recycling centre Upparel to help recycle customers’ clothes nationwide.

Customers can pack their used clothing for return and contact Upparel to collect them up for recycling.

The brand says the average Australian purchases 27kgs of clothing annually – and discards 23kgs. Sussan says that equates to 6000kg of textile waste being disposed of in Australia every 10 minutes.

“By implementing a philosophy of reuse first where possible, then upcycle when necessary, Upparel will ensure that nothing is ever sent off-shore or dumped in landfill,” the company said.

Sussan customers who book a clothing collection during June will receive a $25 voucher to spend in-store or online.
