TRAID operates over 900 textile recycling banks across the UK. Clothing donated to TRAID recycling banks is transported to TRAID's central warehouse and sorted by hand according to quality and style. The clothing is then sold back to the public in one of TRAID's charity shops. Clothing that is torn or stained is reconstructed and redesigned into new one-off pieces and sold under the award-winning recycled fashion label, TRAIDremade. The money that is raised by TRAID through this operation is used to expand TRAIDŐs recycling activities, fund assemblies and workshops in London schools and donated to overseas development projects.
