At Toesox Australia our values go beyond providing high quality grip socks and women’s activewear to Australia and New Zealand consumers. Like our American Partners, at Toesox Australia we value and actively partake in exhibiting sustainable business practices, and that’s why we’ve being partnered with UPPAREL for over 2 years – Australasian leaders in textile recovery and recycling.

Together with UPPAREL, we’re moving towards a more sustainable future for our brand. So, we’ve made it possible for you to recycle your old clothing, Pilates socks, grip socks, yoga socks or even sport socks!

By partnering with UPPAREL, we’re offering you the chance to have 10kg of your old clothing, linen and shoes collected, and score it back in credit which is fully redeemable to spend at ToeSox Australia Online.

Why Recycle your clothing?

Approximately 33% of all the garments produced around the world never leave the shop floor. But where do they all end up? Globally, 87% of all disposed textiles are sent to landfill or incinerated; 12% is mechanically recycled by cutting it or shredding it into fibre, insulation material or rags; and less than 1% is chemically recycled back to reusable raw materials. The effects that textiles have on the planet prove that the linear economy model of take, make and dispose is completely unsustainable.

By implementing their philosophy of reuse first where possible, then upcycle when necessary, UPPAREL will ensure that nothing is ever sent off-shore or dumped in landfill. (Upparel, 2022)

How can you get involved?

The mornings are feeling a little warmer, the flowers are blooming, hay fever is setting in, which means it’s spring-cleaning season! We’re sure many of you are starting to clean out your wardrobes to make room for the new trends coming in your favourite Spring Season Collections. Even more importantly, you must have room to fit some of your favourite non-slip socks or yoga wear from our new Adventure Collection!

Don’t throw your used (but good conditioned) items away, recycle them! Simply visit the clothing recycling page on our website, follow the steps outlined on the page, and receive a $25.00 voucher redeemable on the Toesox Australia website to put towards that new Serene Bra or Pilates Socks you’ve had your eye on.

Happy recycling!
