HELP US SPREAD SOME WARMTH
MAKE SPACE AND A DIFFERENCE
It has always been our belief that the little things – like socks – have the power to make a big difference. It was this conviction that led us to launch our Sock Amnesty a couple years ago.
The Sock Amnesty is a chance for you to have a bit of a cathartic sock drawer clear out while also making a positive impact.
This year, the aim of the game is to make an even bigger difference.
We need you to send us your unwanted socks. New gifted pairs that will never see the light of day? Well-loved socks that have lost their lustre? We want them all as we think it’s time the achieved a higher purpose.
SOS: SEND OLD SOCKS
HOW TO POST YOUR PAIRS TO US
Sending your socks to us is really easy.
You can write ‘Amnesty’ as your order number and choose ‘Sock Amnesty’ as the reason for the return.
Simply wash and pack up your pairs (in the returns bag you might have requested when placing your order or in your own mailbag) and visit the link below to access the freepost returns label.
No printer? No problem!
If you do not have access to a printer, please make sure that you submit a valid email address with the form and you will receive an email with a QR code that you can show on your phone at the Post Office.
Please note that the valid QR code is the one found in the body of the email, not the one found in the label.
Repurposed and reclaimed
After we receive your socks, we will pass them onto our partner for Sock Amnesty 2021 – The Reclaimery. This fantastic organisation works with vulnerable communities here in London to teach them the skills to repurpose garments into unique, limited edition collections with higher quality or value than the original.
Their mission is to reclaim the fashion industry and support our planet through a socially conscious system that creates job opportunities for London’s vulnerable communities. By extending the life of the garments, adding value and saving them from landfill, they are creating a truly circular economy.
Their expert hands will transform all the donated socks into functional, warm fingerless gloves and neck warmers to be donated to the homeless via the wonderful charity Crisis.
You can find out more about the vital work that Crisis do in our blog about LSC’s visit to one of their distribution centres here.
