Giving up clutter for lent? Making the most of the last of lockdown? Spring cleaning? Now’s the best time to give your old clothes and accessories a new lease of life.

You’ll Have More Space
While many of us continue to work from home, having more space to move (and differentiating between workspace and living space) is much easier with less clutter.

You’ll Save and Make Money
Not only can you receive rewards and extra cash when you give your clutter away, you’ll also get into the mindset of avoiding hoarding.

It’s Better for the Environment and Others
Rather than throwing your unwanted items into landfill, you can donate them to charity or sell them online – making someone’s day and saving the planet.

You’ll Feel Happier
Tidy home = a tidy mind. That may be cliché, but it’s true. You’ll feel much more focused and happier with less mess.

It’ll Make Your Home Much Cleaner
Cluttered homes allow for the buildup of dust, dirt and pet hair. The pathogens and toxins contained in these things can be a disaster to our health, so there’s nothing better than a spring clean.

Now that you’ve decluttered here’s where to donate…
Fenwick have announced a new partnership with Thrift+ as part of the RETHINK. RECYCLE. RELOVE. campaign focusing on sustainability. Thrift+ is a UK-based, online donation service specialising in selling quality clothing items that deserve to be given a new lease of life (with proceeds from each sale going to the donor’s chosen charity).

Donating is simple:

  • Add a ThriftBag to your basket alongside your Fenwick purchase.
  • Register with Thrift+ online and select your chosen charity.
  • Send your clothes and clutter for free.

Thrift+ then does all the work to upload and sell the items on its website, using automated pricing and photography technology to speed-up the process, and ensure items are sold for the right price.
Once your items sell, Thrift+ donates the proceeds to your chosen charity, and you receive a 10 percent discount code to use on your next Fenwick online order.
