Our Impact

If you look at the tags in most of your clothes you will see they are often made in Bangladesh. What you may not know is that your clothes are made by some of the world’s poorest women. In Bangladesh, a garment worker gets paid $98 AUD per month, working 6 day weeks and upwards of 10 hours a day.

For many, this is their first role in the formal economy with the only other option being domestic work. These women move from rural villages to large cities, leaving their children and families behind them in search of an income to support them.

Abuse in garment factories is a daily occurrence and the women that make our clothes have limited opportunity to effect change. They will often go without food, and if they bring their children to the cities they need to leave children as young as 4 or 5 years old to take care of themselves during the day, whilst they are at work.

This is a humanitarian crisis and change is needed.

We aim to support advocacy, empowerment, health and well-being programs for these women.

Every time you shop with Reluv Clothing, you have the option to “Give $1 or more to Garment Workers” at the checkout. When you donate, we match your contribution and forward 100% of these funds to support important programs for garment workers.

Shopping with Reluv means you are addressing the environmental and social impacts of the fashion industry at the same time, whilst continuing the story of a garment.

We also support a number of charities within Australia. Items in good usable condition that are not accepted for sale are donated to one of our carefully selected charities:

  • The Remote Op Shop Project which supports entrepreneurship in indigenous communities.
  • Work wear is donated to Fitted For Work to support women seeking employment.
  • Coats and jackets are donated to the homeless in Melbourne to see them through the cold winters
