Supermarket deal helps charity

The Co-operative Group has joined forces with Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development (TRAID) to place the charitys clothing recycling banks at some of its stores.

TRAID sells the clothes at its stores in London and Brighton. But clothes that are torn or stained are customised into new, one-off pieces sold under the designer label TRAID Remade.

Former Red or Dead fashion chain supremo and patron of TRAID Wayne Hemingway (pictured) said: It makes perfect sense for TRAID to join forces with the Co-op as both organisations share such similar values: an interest in local community action, protecting the environment and wider global issues.

This fantastic initiative will help TRAID to collect more textiles, divert more from landfill, sell more high-quality clothing in TRAID shops and raise more money for much-needed development projects overseas.
