Thrift+: the better way to donate clothes to charity

If, like us, you’ve been clearing out your wardrobe recently (nothing a like a lockdown to feel a little Marie Kondo), then you’ll need a great new service called Thrift+ that has partnered up with shopping site Farfetch.  Order a free Thriftbag through their app, fill it up with your clothes (designer or high street but all need to be in good condition, clothes on the site range from Celine, Chanel and Gucci to Warehouse) and they will collect it for free or you can drop if off at your local  Collect+ store.  Thrift+ charges 33% of the selling price to cover their costs (there is a minimum fee of £5 per item sold) and by avoiding shop costs, Thrift+ give a 33% of the selling price to charity. Interesting fact: High Street charity shops only give 19% of the final selling price to charity because of their high  overheads.  Plus you can choose to earn the final 33% as credit to spend on Farfetch.com or donate all the proceeds to charity – any registered charity of your choosing in the UK.  As their tag line says ‘A first-class service for second-hand clothes’.  We think it’s a brilliant idea.
