Live Money Unveils “Do you know what happens to used clothing? A business that helps people and the environment”

Tags : 

Digital newspaper Dinheiro Vivo shared a piece of news that unraveled the curiosity of many people about the clothing used and its fate. Since the Portuguese dispose of 195,000 tons of used clothing annually and the tendency is to increase, this excellent journalistic work shows us that regardless of this situation becoming a problem for the sustainability of the planet, there is a solution. Nowadays, used clothing has become an economic activity and, with a chain of various agents, markets and sales channels, H Sarah Trading Project Manager Daniela Pereira explains that the company is starting its cycle with the collection, forming partnerships with municipalities and social solidarity institutions and creating a network of more than three thousand deposit containers throughout the country, which adds three branches to speed up the collection. In 2018, 863 tons per month were collected, or more than 10,000 tons in the year. The whole process has three destinations: donation, recovery and recycling. Product re-entry is the most commonly used path. “We want to turn the waste into raw material, that’s the goal,” he says. In 2017 accounts, reuse weighed 79.6% – donations also come in here, but they are sporadic and subject to requests. To conclude, Daniela Pereira points out that “valuation is the largest percentage of the company’s business”, being “the parts still in good condition exported to Africa and reintegrated in local markets”. There is a part (over 7%) that does not offer conditions for a second life, which is subject to ragging, and is sold for the manufacture of tapestries, insulation and fillers to India and Pakistan. In both distribution channels, the selling price is per kilo.
