Textile Banks

Looking for an easy way to clear out your wardrobe and help to raise vital funds for babies, children, adults and families living with complex heart conditions? You can donate your unwanted clothes to Red Sky Foundation!

Here at Red Sky, we believe in the power of community, compassion, and sustainability.

Our Textile Bin Collection initiative is one of the many ways we strive to make a positive impact on both people’s lives and the environment. By donating your unwanted clothing items to our charity, you’re not only decluttering your wardrobe but also contributing to raising vital funds for babies, children, adults and families living with complex heart conditions.

Our highly visible banks encourage the public to recycle their unwanted clothing, shoes, handbags, etc. and not add to overstretched landfill sites.


Here are some examples showing how long some items will take to break down if left in the environment: 

Cotton T-shirt  –  6 months
Wool socks  –  1-5 years
Leather shoes  –  25-40 years
Nylon fabric –   30-40 years

Beyond the social benefits, donating clothes to Red Sky Foundation also plays a crucial role in environmental conservation. Textile waste is a significant contributor to landfills, where synthetic fibers can take hundreds of years to decompose, releasing harmful pollutants in the process. By choosing to donate your clothing items instead of discarding them, you’re extending their lifecycle, reducing waste, and minimizing the carbon footprint associated with textile production.

Don‘t throw away things that can be reused! By putting your clothing in one of our Textile Banks you will help raise vital funds for Red Sky Foundation.
