In partnership with Australian Red Cross, Country Road is proudly celebrating 10 years of its iconic Fashion Trade program.
Launched in 2011, Fashion Trade allows customers to donate pre-loved Country Road items from their wardrobes in exchange for a $10 Country Road voucher. These items are then sold on in Red Cross Shops, where the proceeds are put back into programs that support Australian communities.
Through Fashion Trade, over $750,000 has been raised for Red Cross programs in the past 10 years. These funds go towards things like supporting First Nations people in remote communities, helping refugee families settle safely in their new homes and supporting young people in the justice system.
The goal of Fashion Trade is to simultaneously help Australians in need and reduce fashion waste. Since 2011, the program has diverted approximately 37,500kg (37.5 tonnes) of textiles from landfill.
Fashion Trade is available at any Country Road store or Red Cross Shop, any day of the year. To be eligible for a $10 voucher, customers must donate at least one ‘shop quality’ Country Road clothing or accessory item. For a full list of terms and conditions, please see their friendly in store staff.
