  • We-Collect aims to address all these challenges, for long-term positive change in South Africa.
  • Request a meeting with us, we value the opportunity to discuss our initiatives!

The We-Collect Concept

  • Almost all textiles are 100% recyclable, through our campaigns partnered with organisations we can help avoid textiles ending up in landfills.
  • We-Collect has been established to help address waste in South Africa through recycling large volumes of textiles that would otherwise end up in landfills.
  • Most textiles which can be donated are of good quality, and can have a second chance in our local and rural communities. These provide our impoverished communities with affordable clothing and textiles for re-sale in the second hand market.
  • Textiles which cannot be used for re-sale due to inferior quality can be further recycled and used in the industrial sector for the stuffing of soft toys, pillows or even for rags.
