EARNING extra cash and providing those less fortunate with good quality clothing and home items is the aim of Teddy’s Cash For Clothes.
The company, which has drop-off points around Essex, offers some of the best prices for your unwanted clothes in the area.
So, don’t hang on to that tight jumper this winter, or those items which still have the price tag that you’re probably never going to wear, instead, clear some space in your home or your wardrobe by digging it out and bagging it up.
Your unwanted clothing can be re-worn and re-used providing an affordable source of clothing to people in the developing world and emerging nations across Eastern Europe.
A staggering amount – more than one million tonnes – of textiles end up in landfill every year and most of this is from household sources, so giving away your unwanted items to be reused is of benefit to the environment, too. As well as good quality clothing, Teddy’s Cash For Clothes also accepts paired shoes/boots, belts and hand bags. Household items such as pillow cases, duvet covers, towels and table cloths can also earn you extra money and jewellery and unopened cosmetics and perfumes are also accepted.
There’s also a collection service for those unable to get to one of the local drop-off points. You can drop off your bagged items to Base Jump Trampoline Park at 26a Brook Road, Rayleigh or to the site at 633c London Road, Westcliff as well as Basildon Business Centre, Unit 3, Bentalls, Basildon.
Most sites are open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. Call 0208 594 4588 to arrange a collection.
