PrettyLittleThing teams up with recycling app ReGain


Online fast fashion brands like PrettyLittleThing, Missguided, Asos and
Boohoo are often criticized for being unsustainable — so much so that they
were recently called up to give evidence of their practices to the
British parliament
as part of an investigation by the Environmental
Audit Committee about excessive textile waste and illegally low wages.

Now it seems like PrettyLittleThing, one of the brands under the Boohoo
Group, is looking to diminish its environmental impact — or at least
change its reputation. The brand has partnered up with clothing recycling
app ReGain to encourage shoppers to donate unwanted apparel, shoes and
accessories in exchange for discount codes for their next PrettyLittleThing
purchase.

“Did you know you can do your bit to prevent the unnecessary pile up of
discarded clothing in landfills around the UK?”, the brand wrote on its
website. Announcing the partnership on Instagram, PrettyLittleThing’s
Co-Founder Umar Kamani said: “Let’s start making a difference together to
protect our amazing planet”.

Founded last year, ReGain is a free-to-use app enabling users to recycle unwanted clothes in exchange for discount vouchers. Clothes can be dropped off at more than 20,000 points across the UK.
