Give Back Box

After you have bought your new People Tree clothing, you can reuse the packaging and send it freepost to donate some of your unwanted clothes and household items to charity. People Tree has partnered with Give Back Box® * as we want to make it as easy as possible to give your old clothes a new life.


1. Take the items you no longer need (clothes, shoes, etc) and place them in the same packaging in which you received your People Tree purchase. Then seal the box.

2. Go to Give Back Box, print out the free shipping label and attach to the packaging.

Please do not use your People Tree returns label.

3. Ship your donations directly to a local charity via Collect+

By using Give Back Box® you are creating a secondary use for the shipping packaging and guaranteeing that it will be recycled, it helps to clear out your wardrobe, and give you an opportunity to recycle your clothes.

What better way to do it than to donate your unwanted clothes and accessories that are still in good condition to charity, so that you are also giving back as well.

Charities stocks their shelves with the donations from Give Back Box®, and the revenues help to fund their missions. The charities also recycle the packaging.

You can also donate other items such as home textiles, handbags, jewellery, DVDs and CDs. All items should be clean and in good condition, so make a donation and make a difference. Find out more here

According to WRAP who work with governments, businesses and communities to deliver practical solutions to improve resource efficiency. An estimated £140 million worth (350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year and extending the average life of clothes by just three months of active use per item would lead to a 5-10% reduction in each of the carbon, water and waste footprints.

People Tree are always searching for ways to ensuring our clothes and accessories become part of the circular economy and this starts with looking at what to do with those clothes you no longer wear.

Please read below for some different ways to care for and recycle your clothes:

Donate your unwanted clothes and accessories that are still in good condition to charity, so that you are also giving back as well. You can either donate your clothes to your local charity shop, they are now on every high street. Or you can use the same box that sent your People Tree clothes to send your unwanted clothes to charity through GIVE BACK BOX* for free.

If your clothes are beyond repair and wear you can still give them to clothing and textile banks to be recycled. Look at the RECYCLE NOW website to find one near you.
