Luxury fashion platform Farfetch has partnered with resale and donation platform Thrift+ to offer its customers the chance to clear out their wardrobes and donate to a charity of their choice.
Through the partnership, Farfetch customers will be able to request a ‘Thrift+ x Farfetch’ donation bag online and select a charity from any of the 160,000 registered in the UK.
When the collection bag arrives, customers can fill it up with their unwanted clothes and accessories then either book a free collection service or take it to a local drop-off point.
When the bag is received each item is photographed and listed for sale on the Thrift+ website. When an item sells a third of the proceeds is given to the customer in Farfetch credits, a third is donated to their chosen charity and the remaining third is kept by Thrift+ to cover costs.
