Who we are

The company H Sarah Trading, the holder of the Single Environmental Title, is prepared and dedicated to the collection of new and / or used clothes, footwear and toys for later treatment and re-routing, seeking, through its activity, to reduce the amount of waste destined to the landfill.

Headquartered in Vila Verde (Seia), in the central zone of the country, a region plagued by unemployment and lack of opportunities, has given rise to 80 jobs, which tend to increase as a consequence of the company’s continued growth. In the year 2013, H Sarah Trading expanded and created a branch in Braga. A year later, he settled in Lisbon and in the Algarve.
