Sustainable entrepreneurship,
customer loyalty and
turnover growth

Drop & Loop is a new service to collect and sort clothing for reuse and recycling. The program rewards customers when they hand in their used textiles in your store or in your online webshop. This means that as a retailer and producer, you contribute to making worn clothing circular and you visibly contribute to making the textile industry more sustainable. Drop & Loop helps you do business sustainably and ensures higher customer loyalty and growth of your turnover.

A better world starts in your store.

New legislation 2023

Drop & Loop helps retailers to achieve the sustainability goals and to comply with the Decree on the Regulation for Extended Producer Responsibility 2023.

How it works

1

In-store installation and maintenance

We will place the collection machine or collection box in your store or organize textile collection in your webshop. From that moment on you can offer textile collection as a sustainable service that you hardly have to worry about. Thanks to a service contract, we are always there in case of breakdowns or problems.

2

Collection, discount and savings program

Your customers take their old textiles to your store or request an collection bag in your webshop. They can hand in their clothes for reuse or recycling. They receive a discount or reward for each kilo or return, or they save for sustainable products in your store.

3

Collection and logistics

Drop & Loop facilitates the entire process of logistics, clothing collection, sorting, re-purposing and recycling. Without hassle. Full containers are collected by us and sent to our partner Wolkat, who processes them sustainably.

Sorting, re-purposing and recycling

At Wolkat, our leading partner for circular textiles, the clothing is sorted. Reusable clothes are given a new lease of life. The remainder is recycled into raw materials for circular products.

New circular products

We spin new yarn from recycled textiles and make new fabrics. These form the basis for sustainable products, which we can develop together with you. In this way, you and your customers make a visible contribution to a sustainable clothing industry.

Together with our partner Wolkat

Drop & Loop collaborates with her partner 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.
