Re-use and Recycle
Do you own an old RACHEL MCMILLAN garment?
We are in the middle of a climate emergency and things have to change now. No time to waste. It's time to get creative, stand up for the good and fight for our Home.
I'm fully aware there are hundreds of RACHEL MCMILLAN garments out there, that I still feel responsible for. Now, we are only 4 years old so I am really hoping that you are all still wearing your lovely purchases. However, if you do have an old RM garment that you no longer wear and you're not sure what to do with it, then I have a solution (actually a few).
Let's face it, no-one needs any more anxiety so let me help.
1 // Finished with your garment? Have you asked around to see if a family or friend would like it? Have you checked if there are any swap shops in your area or any charity shops that you know will definitely re-sell the garment? If yes, great! if no, move to number 2!
2 // Ok you've done your homework and none of these options work. Email me with a quick picture of your garment, nothing fancy just so I know what to look out for. I will reply with our studio address (AND A BIG THANK YOU FOR NOT THROWING A GARMENT OUT!)
3 // Once I receive the garment, I will email you a unique 10% off discount code for your next order. I will ALSO supply a free shipping code for your next purchase to offset the cost of you sending your old garment back to me. Hey you've done your good deed for the day, so i'll do mine too.
4 // I will then asses the garments condition. If I feel it's re-wearable then I will photograph and add to our 'I'm not Rubbish' page. (A great way to grab yourself a bargain designer garment btw!)
5// If the garment is torn or unwearable then I will recycle. First I will remove any zips, buttons, elastic etc that can be re-used. Any fabric that can be cut up and reused for accessories then will be done so also. The rest will go to our recycling partner. I post any scraps of textiles to them and they sort into end uses, i.e any mixed scraps will get shredded and used for the automative industry, insulation or carpet underlay. They guarantee that no textile goes to landfill. Hoorah.
