Hand in your clothes and
receive a discount
There is now a new and better way to hand in used clothing and textiles. That’s good for the world, because most worn items can be reused or recycled. It’s also good for you, because it will save you money. Help make worn clothing sustainable and circular.
Drop & Loop is for everybody.

The quality of collected textiles is deteriorating rapidly
Each year, 150 million kilos of clothing are incinerated in the Netherlands
Only one-third of the collected textiles is reused or recycled
Your old clothes deserve better. And so do you!
How it works
Hand in your clothes at a
Drop & Loop collection point near you.
Your clothes get a second life through reuse or textile recycling.
You will receive a discount or a savings or voucher for each return.
Hand in your clothes and receive a discount
This is how it works: you put your clothes in a bag at home. You take it with you to one of the stores where there is a Drop & Loop collection point. Every time you hand in your old clothes you get a discount. These are settled at the cash register or service desk.

Sustainable thinking and doing are rewarded
Your clothes are given a new lease of life
Your handed-in clothes are collected and taken to a sorting centre. Anything that can still be worn is given a new lease of life. The rest is used to spin new yarn, which in turn is used to make fabrics. Those fabrics are used to make new clothing or other sustainable products
We collect and sort the clothes
Usable clothing is reused
The rest of the clothing is recycled
We make new fabrics and products from recycled yarn.
We make it together with Wolkat
Drop & Loop collaborates with Wolkat on the collection and processing of textiles. Wolkat is the only circular textile processor in the world where the entire chain (sorting, recycling, spinning and weaving) takes place under one roof. With Wolkat as a partner, Drop & Loop is the first in the Netherlands with a complete circular program for textiles.
We are working hard on the development of the Drop & Loop app. The Drop & Loop app enables you to see how much discount you have earned and what your savings balance is. You will also receive offers for circular products in our webshop. Furthermore, the app has many tips & tricks, a quiz and it shows you how much you really contribute to a more sustainable world. The app will be available from early 2023.
