LEE X UPPAREL

Reuse. Upcycle. Recycle.

You're invited to Move for Change with us as we team up with UPPAREL to reduce our impact on landfill & textile waste. Together with UPPAREL we’ve made it possible for you to send your clothes back for reuse and recycling….and the best part is, we’re rewarding you for doing it. 

The bad news…

Did you know that Australians purchase 27kg of new textiles each year and then discard around 23kg into landfill—annually. This means that as a country, we’re discarding over 6,000kg of textile and clothing waste every 10 minutes. If we don't act now, by the year 2032 you will be able to cover the entire surface of Australia in disregarded textiles


The better news…

Why should I recycle my unwanted textiles? 

Nothing will end up in landfill. 
By implementing their philosophy of reuse first where possible, then upcycle when necessary, UPPAREL will ensure that nothing is ever sent off-shore or dumped in landfill.

You’ll have a positive impact. 
For every 1kg of textiles you divert from landfill, you’ll be preventing 3-4kg of greenhouse gases from polluting the atmosphere. 

We’ll reward you for doing good!
Have 10kg of your old, unwanted clothing collected by UPPAREL for just $25, and receive a $25 Online store credit to spend at Lee Jeans
