Ganni

GANNI has partnered with I:CO to launch their garment take back scheme in their Covent Garden store to make it easier for their community to recycle garments and help extend the life cycle of clothes.

Customers will be able to drop off all kinds of unwanted, worn-out clothing and shoes from any brand, in whatever condition at designated collection boxes in their stores. I:CO then collects the boxes and sorts into different categories, in some cases they’ll be reused, recycled or transformed into new fabrics. For every bag/kg of clothes each customer drops off, GANNI will donate back to the I:CO circularity research project.
