Recycling clothing

Since 2010 we are proud to have partnered with the Newlife Foundation. The charity specialises in providing support for disabled and terminally ill children and their families, directly funding equipment and providing specially trained nurses. 

Our stores across Europe donate all their unsold clothing, which is recycled to raise funds for the important work that Newlife does.

Our programme

Our programme with Newlife is European-wide, and has resulted in almost €3 million in funding for Newlife. Under the scheme, unwanted clothing is collected, sorted and recycled by Newlife, in an environmentally friendly manner.

In 2013, Newlife announced a partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Institute of Child Health to fund medical research. The Newlife Birth Defects Research Centre is Europe's only dedicated birth defects centre. 

Continued Work

Primark will continue to support the growth and development of Newlife in countries where it has retail operations. Further information on the important work that Newlife does can be found on the Newlife website.
