Who we are

We (are) ACT! We collect used textiles for resue and recycling. 

Our efforts are focused on Africa, our motherland. She is a nurturing, loving, and a caring provider. We recognize that she deserves better. We aim to find solutions to end textile waste that is causing harm to our environment and people. 

ACT is composed of ordinary people with extraordinary ideas on how to divert textiles from landfills. We enable a circular economy for textiles, whereby we lower the footprint of the fashion industry while creating new jobs. 

We distribute free and affordable clothing to underprivileged communities and we recycle materials in brand new items. Last, but not least, we support charity with Ksh 10.- for every kilogram of used textiles we recycle!
