The Alternative to Clothes Recycling: Gift Your Gear

We are really grateful to Sherpa Expeditions for the support…

The Alternative to Clothes Recycling: Gift Your Gear. There is a whole range of reasons why we acquire new outdoor gear for our cycling and walking holidays. More often than not, the items we have, can still be used…. Don’t discard them, instead take them to a clothes recycling point or why not Gift Your Gear.

Gift Your Gear, an initiative that accepts gear donations and then provides them to community organisations, youth groups and charities that work with young people in the outdoors. This outdoor gear exchange initiative was founded in 2012 by Sarah Howcroft, who was co-founder of the outdoor clothing company Rohan. Sarah has been involved in the outdoor industry for over 40 years and this has taken her all over the world.
