Lockdown restrictions can be really tough on our mental health...

Being locked inside and socially distancing from our friends and family for weeks or months at a time will take a toll on just about anyone. And after about a year and a half of moving in and out of lockdowns here in Australia, we are certainly seeing the effects.

It's incredibly important for everyone who's feeling these negative effects to seek support. However, particularly during these times, it can be very difficult to take that first step if you don't have an immediate family or friend you can speak to.

This is where GROW may be able to help. They've transitioned their Grow Program online! So you can now find the support you need from the comfort of your home. Plus, eGrow is available to anyone, is free of charge to join, and is confidential.

We seriously value mental health, both at home and in the workplace. Which is why we're helping GROW raise awareness and drive the conversation! As of July 1st, all profits from our sock subscriptions have been going to directly support GROW's mental health programs.

Want to see what else we find while sorting?

Waste comes in many forms. From paper and plastic, to textiles and shoes. Even though we can only accept the latter, that doesn't stop people from sending us the former!

Headphones, hole punches, sunglasses, and umbrellas! As most of you know, we cannot recycle these.

This is one of the key reasons we need to manually sort each and every item individually.  Along with categorising the items for reuse or recycling, we also need to remove any items that we cannot recycle.

So please don't send us whatever is laying around your house. Although some may think one misplaced item may not make a difference, imagine if just one item is added to each of the thousands of boxes we receive. We would have a ridiculous amount of additional waste that we cannot recycle.

Fortunately, this only represents a small percentage of people so we'd like to thank everyone else who follows our guidelines and only sends in items we can recycle.

If you're ever unsure about an item, we have a list of accepted and non-accepted items in the FAQ section of our website. If you don't find an answer to what you're looking for, feel free to send us a message and we'll be able to let you know! 💚

Next week, we’ll be trying something a little different… 

We’re going live! For nearly the whole week, we’ll be hosting daily live-streams on Instagram with a variety of interactive activities!

With so many of us still in lockdown, we thought there was no better time to bring our community together (virtually) for a bit of fun! 

Live-Stream Schedule:
Monday - Textile Sorting
Tuesday - Live Q&A
Wednesday - DIY Kids Workshop
Thursday - UPPAREL HQ Tour

The live streams will begin at 1:30pm each day so we’d suggest adding a little reminder in your phone so you don’t miss out! 

We’ve got some pretty cool things planned, so we hope you can drop-in and hang with us! 💚

Struggling to find something to send you old clothes in?

Well here’s a few ideas! 📦

You can pack those textiles into any old cardboard box you have lying around. Whether it’s a wine box, grocery box, toilet paper box, or your last Amazon order. Just about any box will do!

Are you worried about the size or weight? Here’s a little guide to know if your box is suitable without scales.

If you’re able to comfortably pick up the box and hold it out in front of you, then you’re probably in the clear! If you’re struggling, then your box may be too large or heavy.

Alternatively, here are some household objects that are 10kg that you can compare it to!
🍻 Slab of tinnies
🐶 Small - Medium Sized Dog
🚗	Car Tyre 
👶	Baby High Chair
🧳	Carry-on Luggage

Can’t find a suitable cardboard box? You can also use a tartan storage bag! We’ll then pass them onto @intocarry.co to transform them into awesome upcycled bags!

We recommend folding up any boxes you receive and packing them away because you never know when you’ll need to send in more clothes for recycling ♻️

This is why we do it...⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Chances are you've at least heard some mention of the Foreign Correspondent's recent piece on textile waste. For those that aren't familiar, last week the ABC published a simultaneously fascinating and terrifying short documentary about the tonnes of used textiles being sold to Ghana from Europe, the US, China, and Australia.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
A majority of these clothes are on-sold from organisations not doing the right thing.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The people of Ghana have no use for these items either. So the textiles are dumped into local landfills where they leach chemicals into waterways, pollute the atmosphere as they're incinerated, or decay over hundreds of years.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
These very real and devastating impacts of the fast fashion industry are why we do, what we do. By innovating and investing in the Australian recycling industry, we're able to ensure nothing needs to be sent off-shore.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Businesses, charities, and individuals in Australia now have an on-shore solution for their textile waste.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We're not here to name and shame. Instead, we want to help. We want to work with as many organisations as we can to support and facilitate their steps towards sustainability.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
If you have a moment, we highly recommend watching 'Dead White Man's Clothes'. You can find it through the link in our bio — @upparelofficial⁠⁠

Here's 3 MILLION reasons why we should continue this journey to eradicate textile waste! ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We've just reached a massive milestone! Together, we've diverted over 3 million items from landfill! That's a seriously insane impact to make in less than a year and a half 🎉
⁠⁠
Every single one of those 3,000,000 items will be either reused, repurposed or recycled entirely within Australia, breathing new life into something that would otherwise be lying in a landfill.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
This is all thanks to you! Whether you're an individual recycling 10kg of old clothes or one of our partners recycling tonnes of old uniforms! Without all of you taking a stand against textile waste, we wouldn't be anywhere close to where we are today. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
However, this is still just the beginning... ♻️💚⁠⁠
⁠⁠
PS. We're still collecting textiles in lockdown! Click the link in our bio to get started — @upparelofficial⁠⁠

Yes! We absolutely can accept fabric scraps! ✂️

After numerous questions and comments, we thought it was about time we layed it out loud and clear.

Any fabric off-cuts and scraps we recieve will go straight into our recycling process. They’ll be shredded down into a fine, fluffy fiber that can be transformed into a variety of things such as insulation or our recycled cushioning! 

Whether you sew as a hobby or own a fashion label, we welcome you to send us your offcuts and scraps and we’ll make sure none of it ends up in landfill ♻️

The modern construction industry can create incredible things like roads, bridges, water treatment facilities, and renewable energy assets! However, it can in turn create a significant amount of waste...⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Thankfully, industry leaders like Acciona are making  huge strides in sustainability. For example, they've been 100% carbon neutral since 2016! 🌏⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We've partnered up with @acciona to support them in their sustainability journey by recycling their worn out high-vis uniforms!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
This 100kg bale is from just ONE construction site. We can't wait to see how much we're going to save over the next few months!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
All of these worn out uniforms will go straight into our recycling process where they'll be shredded down into a fine, fluffy fibre. This fibre can then be transformed into things like home insulation, or cushioning for furniture! ♻️⁠⁠

If our clothes could talk, oh the stories they would tell! 📖⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The things we wear hold so many stories and memories! So it's always fascinating to get an insight into the pre-loved items that enter our warehouse before they're recycled.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Whether it's a pair of runners that have helped you finish your first race, a jacket that kept you warm through a particularly cold winter, or your faithful equestrian riding boots!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
By adding sentimental value to an item, we're much more likely to wear it longer! Which is not only great for our pockets but also better for the environment 🌏⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Everyone in the UPPAREL team also really appreciates all the love and support our community gives us through these little letters! We're incredibly lucky to have so many passionate people backing our mission and joining us on this journey 💚⁠⁠

There goes over 16,000KG worth of old footwear on their way to a new life! ♻️⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Ugg boots, work boots, gumboots, and go-go boots! They're all on their way to be recycled into a plethora of sustainable products. Things such as yoga mats, rubberized athletic surfaces, and playground floors can all be made from the reclaimed rubber, fabric, and leather!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
As we were loading them into the container, the sky decided to bless us with some classic Melbourne weather! Which helped kick us into gear and cut our little photoshoot short.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Shout out to our legendary warehouse manager, Andrew! Pushing through rain, hail, and shine to get all those shoes prepped and ready for recycling ♻️⁠⁠
⁠⁠
If you have old shoes lying around, send them to us and we'll find a new use for them! Click the link in our bio to get started — @upparelofficial⁠⁠
