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.

Drop & Loop in your city?

Drop & Loop is starting with a number of pilots but we want to expand as soon as possible! Sign up if you want to have a Drop & Loop point in your neighborhood. With 250 subscribers we will look for a Drop & Loop location close to you.

Why?

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

Drop & Loop collection point near you.

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

Loop

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.

The app

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.
