Re-Use

Social Impact - ImpacTex NZ

With a commitment to our Social Impact Partners, our sort process provides opportunities to donate resaleable clothing to charities, social enterprises and not-for-profits.

Recycle / Upcycle

Recycled Textile Panels - ImpacTex NZ

When textiles are not suitable for wear, our Recycle/Upcycle process comes into play. In New Zealand, we have developed a revolutionary material called ReTex, which has versatile applications such as packaging, acoustic panelling, corporate giftware, indoor/outdoor signage, merchandising displays and much more.

By transforming these end-of-life textiles, together we’re not only diverting them from landfills but also creating a Sustainable Alternative to products made from virgin non-sustainable materials, such as corflute, polystyrene and fibreglass.

Sort

This first step in our Recovery process is crucial in ensuring the most appropriate recovery channel for each textile item. Our trained team meticulously sort and grade the garments, to identify whether they are suitable for:

  • Reuse via donation to our Social partners or
  • Repurposing via donation to our network of creative designers and artists or
  • Recycling via our manufacturing partners

De-Commissioning

Items that are branded (uniforms) or not deemed suitable for resale by our Social Partners are meticulously prepared for the next stage of recycling. This is a particularly crucial stage of the process to ensure there are no foreign objects and ‘hardware’ remaining on the garments prior to our Recycle/Upcycle process.
