Where to donate your clothes in the Klang Valley

If you’re doing a bit of spring cleaning or have a big wardrobe with very little that you actually wear, here’s a way for you to do something meaningful with your gently-loved clothes. Donate your used garments to those in need so that they will be passed down to new owners who will appreciate them just like you did.

Like thrift shopping, donating clothes is a great way to practice sustainability in fashion as it reduces clothing wastage, which is a significant contributor to the pollution of the environment. A good deed that helps both people and the planet, donating is definitely an activity we all should start being proactive about. Nonetheless, it is essential to ensure that the clothes you’re donating are in good condition, as they will directly be given to those in need. If you’re ready to start donating now, here are some locations within the Klang Valley where you can make a meaningful impact.


1Recycling Centre by 1 Utama

 This sustainable initiative was launched by 1 Utama Shopping Centre to spread awareness of the zero-waste culture. Spot the recycling booths at Level B2, where you can make quick drop-offs of your items, as well as the Art-Cycling Installation that’s created with recycled materials from the mall. Other than clothing, this spot also welcomes e-waste like mobile phones, along with plastics, aluminium, paper, bags, toys and lanyards.

A part of the money will also be spent to help with the operational costs for the Kenosis and Rainbow drug rehabilitation centres.
