Seasalt ReLoved

Too good to go to waste, Seasalt ReLoved creates a new chapter for Seasalt clothes that have been loved and lived in, helping us close the loop and sow the seeds for a better future.

A NEW CHAPTER FOR YOUR CLOTHES

This year, as part of our plans to reduce waste, we’re launching Seasalt ReLoved in 10 selected shops across the UK.

We truly believe our clothing has so much more to give after you’ve finished wearing it, and this waste-reducing initiative has been designed to help write a new chapter for Seasalt clothes that you have loved and lived in.

Seasalt ReLoved will save clothes from landfill by helping you to give your garments another story; a second life that rewards recycling and inspires creativity, all while reducing impact on the environment.

Our clothing take-back scheme is as simple as 1,2,3. We’ve outlined how you can bring your clothing back to us below.

1

What to return

We accept clean, washed Seasalt branded clothing, home textiles and footwear.

At the moment, we can’t accept any non-Seasalt clothing or any Seasalt items that sit outside these categories.

2

How to return

Find out if your closest Seasalt shop is participating in the ReLoved pilot by checking the shop listings on our website.

When you visit, make your way to one of our shop team and they’ll help you return your items easily and safely.

What happens next?

We'll work with our partners to make sure your items don't go to landfill.

You can also complete an online questionaire to tell us about your experience. As a thank you, we'll enter you into our competition to win a Cornish Tea hamper.

TOP RELOVED FAQS

What happens to my clothes after I give them to Seasalt ReLoved?

After you give your old Seasalt garments to us, we’ll analyse and collate data on them to gain a better understanding of how they have worn over time. This will help us improve the quality of our clothing even further and develop new services to help our customers choose more sustainable options in the future. 

Once we’ve completed that process, we pass the products on to our recycling partner, Yellow Octopus. They will repair stock where they can and resell it to markets across the world, giving it a second life and making sure it does not end up in landfill.

If a resale isn’t possible, the garment gets shredded and used for industrial purposes, like insulation. Yellow Octopus has a strict policy that ensures no clothing processed through them goes to landfill. You can find out more information about them here

Seasalt does not make any profit from taking back old garments.

Will you accept non-Seasalt items?

After you give your old Seasalt garments to us, we’ll analyse and collate data on them to gain a better understanding of how they have worn over time. This will help us improve the quality of our clothing even further and develop new services to help our customers choose more sustainable options in the future. 

Unfortunately, if we use non-Seasalt clothing to gather this data, we won’t be able to gain the insights we require to bring you some exciting new options for sustainable choices.

Where can I buy Seasalt ReLoved garments?

We’re currently exploring how we can make Seasalt ReLoved garments available for our customers to purchase. We look forward to sharing more information with you as we progress with these exciting plans.

Why choose Seasalt Reloved instead of a charity shop?

Seasalt ReLoved is a pilot scheme that is being trialled in a limited number of our Seasalt shops.

We’re looking at how we can use the garments you bring back to us to explore ways to extend and create new life for these products. This will enable us to develop new services to help our customers choose more sustainable options in the future and make sure that their clothes do not end up in landfill. Seasalt does not make any profit from taking back old garments.

Of course, some of our customers will still want to donate clothing to charity shops, gift or sell their clothing through other routes. Seasalt ReLoved simply offers another choice to our community.

I only shop online but want to participate, how can I get involved?

Our initial launch is part of a pilot scheme that will help us to understand what our customers would like us to offer as part of a wider rollout in the future. For now, Seasalt ReLoved is available in a small number of our Seasalt shops – these are Truro, Marlborough, Northallerton, Guildford and Wells.

Unfortunately, the service is not available online yet, but if it proves successful with our community, we will look at ways to support online options in the future. You may find that the process differs from shop to shop as we are hoping to learn as much as we can from the pilot. We welcome all customer feedback to help us to further develop this service.
