RE.UNIQLO
Recycle & Reuse Framework

We collect secondhand UNIQLO clothes in stores for reuse and deliver them to people in need worldwide in the form of emergency clothing aid for refugee camps and disaster areas together with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), NGOs, and NPO. Clothing that cannot be reused is recycled as fuel or soundproofing material*. Recently, we have been actively recycling clothes into clothes, starting with our down products.

  • 回収する

    We collect secondhand UNIQLO and GU clothing that customers no long need in RE.UNIQLO boxes placed in each store.

  • 仕分ける

    We sort donations into clothes that can be reused and clothes that can be used for another purpose through recycling.

  • ニーズに応え

    Clothes are classified into 18 detailed categories such as season, gender, size, adult, child, climate, culture, or religion to fulfill recipient needs.

  • 加工・再生する

    Use unique technology to recycle down and feathers into new clothing. Other items are recycled as alternative fuel to reduce CO2 emissions.

  • 世界中で役立つ

    We deliver needs-appropriate clothing to refugees and displaced persons all over the world. Recycled fuel and soundproofing material is sent to factories. Down and feathers are regenerated into new clothing items.
