Join Oxfam’s sustainable fashion movement

The issue

Did you know that every week 13 million items of clothing end up in UK landfill?

This throwaway fashion is putting increasing pressure on our planet and its people – it’s unsustainable.

What can we do about it?

Oxfam rescues millions of items of clothing from landfill through its nationwide shop network, and its recycling facility, Wastesaver. In fact, the clothes saved by Oxfam in a year weigh as much as the Eiffel Tower!

You can get involved and be part of the sustainable fashion movement. Oxfam needs volunteers to take on all sorts of roles and help in many ways to give clothes a second life.

You may be keen on sorting donations, photographing and listing items online, or getting involved in customer service. Whatever appeals to you, it all helps in the journey to more sustainable fashion.
