Each of us has plenty of items in our wardrobes which are never going to be worn again.
Of course, we could simply throw them away. But AWAY IS SOMEWHERE.
Around 50 full trailers of unwanted clothing go into UK landfill sites every single day.
Yes, 50. Yes, every single day. Over 18000 trucks per year end up as waste.
In landfills, it will take up to 50 years for some garments to decompose.

They are realist.
The developers are not naive,! They won't tell you to stop buying clothes and fashion accessories. But it should be kept in balance. The unwanted thrown away new ones bought. This process will make our planet full of garbage. This app is doing a great job in a practical way.
Perpetuating the problem
While I love the idea of this app for its ease of use and best intentions, by offering coupons to fast fashion brands only exacerbates the problem! I have refrained from using this app since I downloaded it when they launched because of this issue. I logged on again and am pleased to see they at least now have some ethical fashion brands available ... BUT WAY DOWN THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST?!
After much consideration into what apps and business I will support, I’ve decided against ReGain as I don’t feel it’s doing the good work it could be doing.
Sorry guys, but there you have it.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback, Khandiz.
The global fast fashion problem is huge and growing. The majority of items produced is worn just a handful of times before being disposed of, with estimated 85% of textiles ending up in landfill or incinerators.
While leading fashion brands move to use more sustainably sourced materials and launch repair, resale and rental services, reGAIN app provides a solution to the consumer piece of the puzzle, fostering long-lasting behaviour change in their consumption habits and engaging more people in recycling scheme.
A great number of our customers use the app to simply support the idea of sustainable fashion without discount coupons being redeemed. However, our target group is mostly young people who cannot be convinced not to buy new stuff just because of the environmental issues we face today — this simply won't work. Accept it or not, people will keep buying more and more things as long as they are cheap and trendy. Our task, on the other hand, is to prevent the produced garments from ending up on landfills, providing an easy and REWARDING way to sustainably get rid of unwanted clothes.
Pop up screen blocks out entire screen
When I tap on the question that says what can I put in the box, the result is a huge pop-up image that blocks my entire screen. It feels like I should scroll down but it doesn't allow me to scroll down and see all the items I can't put in. It also doesn't allow me to close that image. I have to double-tap the home button to then close the app and open it afresh. Can you sort out this error, please?
