Global PUMA Danish Fashion Katvig Church Army Swaps Markets

Puma does it, H & M does it. Jack & Jones does it. Recycle clothing. Our current take-make-waste model is outdated. In the future we will not only reuse, but also to a greater extent recycle our clothes and shoes.

We have high ambitions for a waste-free fashion industry, and hope you will help make that ambition become real. We intend to find the right business model for a collection system for clothing, and we need your input. How should a return system work, for you to use it?

Simultaneously, we hold a swap-market where you can drop off clothes you no longer use, and then go searching for treasures others have brought in. Excess clothing that is not exchanged, will be handed on to Church Army.
