For ELECTRONICS we recommend Tech for Good. Be in touch with Joshua on firstname.lastname@example.org or 058 821 0417 for collection/more information
For Textiles, Pillows, Cushions, and Thick Blankets, we recommend donating to your favourite dog shelter.

For home decor, try giving to your security guards, or selling them at Dubai Flea Market.
For hangers, your local tailor or laundromat.
WHERE DO WE COLLECT FROM?
We collect in Dubai.
If you are outside of Dubai, you can arrange to send us your items.
Decluttering can bring you a sense of peace and joy, especially when it benefits a good cause. We recommend checking out the KonMari method for this life changing process.
OUR WORK SUPPORTS Gulf for Good, helping children around the world (IACAD approved). We donate 100% of the profits from reselling your items to their children's charity projects.
Our process keeps clothing local. It is much more empowering for communities overseas to have sustainable impactful projects than to be flooded with cheap second hand clothing. Many other places you contribute clothing sell in bulk to third world countries, negatively impacting the economy's own clothing industries and contributing to third world landfills.
DO YOU BUY THE ITEMS?
In exchange for all of your items (a bag or more worth AED10/above), we provide you with a gift certificate for AED10 for our physical store.
Should you want cash for your items, we recommend the following resellers:
C) Imperfect condition and can't be fixed/not worth fixing - we take these items to the weekly flea markets in Zabeel Park, Al Barsha Pond Park, Ibn Battuta etc and sell the items for AED5/piece. We also respond to local requests for clothing donations with this stock.
D) Condition is unsellable - Our partner, Kiswa, kindly buy these from us at AED2/kg and recycle them into furniture or carpet in Pakistan.
We also have several upcycling partners who select fabrics to turn into new awesome products here in Dubai.
E) Luxury - regardless of the condition, we do our best to authenticate internally, repair and sell for a seventh of the price new in store and online.
We send items we cannot authenticate to The Luxury Closet to sell through their portal.
Items that are returned as inauthentic are sold at flea markets.
F) High value jewellery and watches - Clara in Gold & Diamond Park kindly sponsor the authentication and valuing of jewellery. We price our items below market rate, calculated based on the market value for the weight/quality of the materials plus the making fee per gram.
Max&Max in Times Square Center kindly sponsor new battery watches for us.
G) Textiles including sheets, pillow covers and curtains - We donate these to be upcycled into sustainable period pads to be shipped overseas to support girls that would otherwise miss schools without a good solution for their periods. Alternatively, dependent on quantities, we donate these items to K9 Dog Shelter in Jebel Ali.
