Cloop Received Token of Appreciation from PM Lee Hsien Loong

Shortly after celebrating Cloop’s 3rd year anniversary, we received a token of appreciation from PM @leehsienloong at the @amktowncouncil Tree Planting Day event on 29 October 2023. Thank you so much for this! It’s extra special for me because I grew up in Ang Mo Kio central and awesome to contribute back in this manner.

Since early 2023, AMK TC adopted 31 Cloop textile recycling bins and have diverted 141,678 KG of textile waste from the incinerator and landfill by Q3! 18 more Cloop bins will be deployed in Ang Mo Kio town area in preparation for the spring cleaning season. #recycleright and find out what happened after at @cloop.sg pinned video coverage by @channelnewsasia

Thank you AMK TC for working with Cloop towards a cleaner, greener Earth! And thank you all for recycling your preloved textiles with Cloop!

Deputy Prime Minister - Heng Swee Keat

Spring cleaning for the New Year and looking to give your pre-loved textile items a new lease of life? You can recycle clothes, bags, shoes or textile household items in a clean and dry condition at the @eastcoasttc Textile Recycling Bins. These large yellow bins are conveniently located across 18 locations in East Coast. I encourage our residents to make good use of them and contribute to a green and more sustainable future! ♻️

Calling on fashion lovers! This #ClimateActionWeek, the Singapore Fashion Council and Cloop are offering options for you to stay in trend sustainably.

Whether you choose to upcycle or send your preloved clothes to Cloop for recycling, you will be doing your part to reduce waste in Singapore.

Minister for Sustainability and the Environment of Singapore - Grace Fu

Learning about the work of Cloop, a local clothes swap organisation that also runs talks and workshops to help people understand the environmental impact when they consume fast fashion. Do recycle your pre-loved clothing at their textile recycling bins set up across Singapore.

Member of Parliament Rachel Ong

#Didyouknow You can recycle your unwanted textiles, fabrics and clothes with the newly installed Yellow Cloop Textile Recycling Bins around town! 👕👖🧸

Part of PAP Town Council’s Action for Green Towns (AGT) plan, the initiative allows residents to recycle clothes, bags, shoes, belts, caps/hats, accessories and household items such as soft toys, pillows, towels and linens in any clean and dry condition (new or old). Just pack them in any bag within 50cm X 50cm, max. 7kg, and place them inside the bin.

The 2 bins in Telok Blangah are located at Blk 77 Telok Blangah Drive (in front of POSB ATM) and Blk 28D Dover Crescent (on grass beside service road).

If you would like to check out other initiatives to close the fashion loop, be sure to follow @cloop.sg for the latest updates!

Member of Parliament Louis Ng

Thank you to our staff @ Nee Soon Town Council for your hard work and a big thank you to our partners Cloop, Life Line Clothing, SGRecycle, and susGain.
And thank you to Daryl and Youjie for coming up with this idea of recycling our pre-loved clothes.

 

What happens to these donated pre-loved clothes?

Life Line Clothing, is an ISO-accredited textile recycler who works with over 25 Malaysia councils and companies such as IKEA, Shell, AEON and Tesco in Malaysia. Besides upcycling the collected materials into new textile items, re-usable items are made into apparels to be worn again. Some items are downcycled to be made into industrial cleaning cloths. Items that are torn, damaged and not fit for reuse are stripped mechanically to fibres to be turned into products such as rugs and gloves. Textiles that cannot be reused will be processed into material reinforcements in specific kinds of concrete. Shoes collected are turned into materials used for playground surfaces! The recycler has also been working with the DBS, Standard Chartered and NTU students to chemically recycle fibre back to fine yarn for clothing.

Member of Parliament Jamus Lim

We stumbled on a number of our specialized recycling bins, which are designated for the collection of textiles and other personal use items, such as bags and shoes. The brightly colored yellow bins can be found in clusters around #Anchorvale, and in time, these will also be rolled out to the other divisions of #SengkangGRC. We encourage residents to consider dropping off their preloved items—assuming they are in reasonable condition—in these bins, instead of disposing them. Depending on their state, the items are either resold in second-hand markets in Malaysia, sold for upcycling into other products, or (in the worst-case scenario) used as fuel along with coal to produce energy.

Thanks to our partners, Life Line Clothing, for their commitment to this work of reducing our impact on the planet. Their approach goes beyond the usual 3Rs of reuse, reduce, and recycle, to add another “R”: of renewing the lifespan of some of these donated items. The project is part of the ongoing effort by the town council to implement green initiatives across the estate.

Member of Parliament Eric Chua
