Registration

Submit the Online Booking Form. A confirmation email will be sent for successful booking.

Preparation

Bring one used garment with the booking confirmation email to the G2G counter before the specified date.

Please ensure the used garment is cleaned and valuable items are removed. 

Sweater and T-shirt are preferred. Garments made of Lycra, spandex, down and leather, rubber print and special coating, etc are NOT suitable for G2G recycling.

Old Garment Review

Our researcher will evaluate the condition and recyclability of the used garment. If it is recyclable, you may consider to get a brand-new recycled knitwear with a fee. It usually takes 21 working days for the production of recycled garment.  

Fibre Blending and Color

To enhance the yarn spinning strength, virgin fibre, e.g. cotton and lyocell, will be blended with recycled material. The virgin fibre blending percentage varies depending on the quality of the used garment.

The virgin fibre is naturally white, making the upcycled garment appear lighter than the original. Recycled garment may contain some foreign fibres.

Style Selection

Crew neck, v neck and turtleneck sweater, sweater dress and scarf are available for selection.
