We do everything we can to ensure Boden clothing never ends up in landfill by donating unsold and faulty (but still wearable) items to charity. We’re partnering with Newlife, National Police Aid Convoys, Scope, M25M and jailbirds. Customers who participate in our ‘Pass it On’ recycling scheme contribute to this work.
Newlife is changing the lives of thousands of disabled and terminally ill children across the UK by supporting them and their families by fast-tracking life-changing equipment. They fund high-quality research which aims to improve health and support a better quality of life. And support families with tailored help through a nurse-manned national helpline. In 2020 and 2021, we donated over 7 tonnes of clothing to Newlife, which was sold to generate donations.
Similarly, the National Police Aid Convoys (NPAC) is a fantastic organisation that delivers humanitarian aid to disaster zones or places that need emergency support. Since 2019, we’ve donated not fit for sale clothing to The Commonwealth of Dominica, Syria and Africa.
We’ve worked with the charity, Scope since 2013. During this time, sales of over £1 million have assisted their campaign towards a fairer and more equal society for people with disabilities, providing them with practical information and emotional support.
We’ve also donated 30 tonnes of clothing to countries in urgent need and over 100,000 items to our US charity partner M25M and British initiative jailbirds, a social enterprise supporting young female offenders in prisons through the discovery of art, creativity, and life skills..
