Our recycling program
25th, June 2019, 150kg collected —> 3750 kg of avoided Co2 emissions!
According to the Eco-organism of textile, linen and footwear, 1kg of textile collected avoids the emission of at least 25kg C02. In every shops, we set up a recycling terminal. The goal of the project is to collect 5 tons of products for the first year! By giving a second life to clothes, shoes, bags and accessories less waste is produced. Furthermore, it reduces the amount of ressources that must be extracted from our planet! the idea is to move from a linear economy to a circular economy:
RECYCLING TERMINALS IN OUR SHOPS
Anyone is able to come and fill our terminals with is own clothes, from FAGUO to other brands. Every clothe or shoe will be collected. . The only condition: everything must be clean & dry. Shoes must be paired. Shoes, textiles, luggage, accessories, we accept everything. Once the terminal is full, our partner I: CO will pick up the products and give them a second life.
I: CO is THE specialist in textile collection and recycling. It is especially the only one company in the world to be able to recycle shoes. As a shoemaker, it was an indispensable step for us.
AND AFTER WHAT DO THESE PRODUCTS BECOME?
Ecologically, the reuse of textiles and footwear is the most meaningful option. So if the products are in good condition they will be resold as second-hand products. We do not make any profits in this operation.
NB: if the products are in good condition and not too worn, we advise you to sell them on websites like Vinted or Leboncoin.
