      DOING A CORPORATE DRIVE?

      First, thank you. We can offer you an impact certificate against this. For coordination, please be in touch with Jade on jade@thriftforgood.org / 058 572 6686

       

      HOW DO I PREPARE MY CONTRIBUTIONS?

       It is very helpful if you could please wash and fold your items.

      Also, if you have end of life textiles that need recycling, it helps our sorting volunteers if you put these in a separate labelled bag. This way, you can keep your dirty holey socks out of landfill without our people going through them.

      You would help us greatly by also including a note with any high value items or if contributing a luxury item (whether it is authentic or inauthentic).

      Thank you so much for your incredible support!

       

      WHAT DO WE ACCEPT?
      Due to storage constraints, we only accept clothing, shoes, bags, fashion accessories, and books. Boxes are also very valuable to us.

      We take any items in any condition and recycle the end of life items with Kiswa.

      WE UNFORTUNATELY CANNOT ACCEPT TOYS, FURNITURE, OR HOUSE ITEMS IN STORE/VIA SHYFT.

       

       

      FOR FURNITURE - THINK UPCYCLE

      You can now help TFG by giving your unwanted furniture in collaboration with Think Upcycle.

      Think Upcycle is the UAE's largest two-sided marketplace of household furniture, underpinned by a circular economy. A one-stop shop for all your used furniture needs.

      They collect unwanted items and upcycle them into unique, affordable, and environmentally-friendly furniture.

      Think Upcycle will contribute 20% of the earnings from the sale of your sellable furniture to TFG to support our projects for children around the world.
      Here's how it works:
      1. There are three methods to contact Think Upcycle: Visit https://yallajunkit.com/#form or contact Think Upcycle at 04 204 9292 or +971585927522 via WhatsApp.

      3. Customer service will walk you through the next steps to share the image for additional review.
      4. Free collection takes place on a mutually agreed-upon date.
      You can also shop upcycled furniture through Think Upcycle's platform. Use the code TFG5OFF to get a 5% discount and donate 10% of the sales price to Thrift for Good!
      Please note that Think Upcycle may not be able to give the 20% commission if it is a low value/hard to sell item.

       

      For TOYS, we recommend www.myecosouk.com

      For ELECTRONICS we recommend Enviroserve.

       

       

      WHERE DO WE COLLECT FROM?

      We collect in Dubai.

      If you are outside of Dubai, you can arrange to send us your items.

       

      WHY DECLUTTER?

      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.

       

      WHAT DO YOU DO WITH MY ITEMS?

      Please see the image at the bottom of this page. We will start by sorting them into categories and prices and then, based on value and condition, decide what to sell online, in store, at market, in bulk through our partner resellers, gift onwards, or recycle. To the best of our ability, we repair/upcycle damaged items through our #patched initiative or we recycle through Kiswa

      We will endeavour to sell your items for the highest possible price online, at markets, events and to resellers.

       

      OUR WORK SUPPORTS Gulf for Good, helping children around the world (IACAD approved PRHCE-000040519).

       

      DO YOU BUY THE ITEMS?

      In exchange for all of your items, we provide you with a gift certificate for AED10 for our physical and online store.

      Should you want cash for your items, we recommend the following resellers:

      • Shop Retold for perfect quality branded women's clothing. You can sell your clothes for AED5 each and consign for authenticated luxury items (you will be paid 60%). Shop Retold accept donations on our behalf for anything that they do not want to buy.
      • The Luxury Closet for perfect/near perfect luxury items. They will authenticate your item and pay you approximately 60% of the retail price on a consignment basis.
      • Garderobe for women's fashion
      • La Suite for women's fashion
      • Have other suggestions?
      WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR ITEM (Continued)?
      First, we sort your items into:
      A) Perfect quality - we sell in our stores or our online shop. Sometimes this happens on the same day. Otherwise, it can take up to a week before you start seeing your items in store.
      B) Needs washing/stain treating/minor repairs - If the item is not perfect, but can be made to be perfect, we do our best.
      • Champions Cleaners sponsors 18kg of washing each week.
      • Volunteers take home stained items (worth AED30 or more) and individually treat these.
      • We organize volunteer repair gatherings where we mend clothing that is we can fix. For the items we can't, Stitch In Time kindly sponsors our repairs.

       

      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 in Turkey.

       

      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 but always more than the value of gold/silver/diamonds in the piece.

      Max&Max in Times Square Center kindly sponsor new battery watches for us.
