THANKS TO YOU BETWEEN OCTOBER 2021 - DECEMBER 2022, DECJUBA WAS ABLE TO:


PREVENT

162kg textiles from being sent to landfill.

SAVE

587kg greenhouse gases from polluting our atmosphere.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once Upparel receives your box of textiles the items go through a sorting process which is broken down into three categories.RE-USEAll items that are in wearable condition are passed onto charitable organisations to ensure they are available for those who need them most.RE-PURPOSEItems that are identified as being able to be repurposed or upcycled, are donated to key Australian brands that turn old worn jeans into brand new pieces of clothing.RE-CYCLEAny items that can't be re-used or re-purposed are sorted by type of material and colour and then shredded and spun with new fibres for mattresses, pet beds, home insulation... the list goes on.

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

At DECJUBA we always want to do what’s right, and we are committed to accelerating our journey towards a more sustainable future.

“Responsible fashion feels good and looks good on everyone.”
