More than 2 billion pairs of tights are produced, used and discarded every year. They are made using oil, chemicals, water and energy and when thrown away they dissolve into microplastics polluting our groundwater and oceans.
The Dear Denier Recycling Initiative is the first big scale initiative worldwide to address this massive problem.
No sustainable solution for recycling tights currently exist and it is not possible to make new tights from old tights, yet!
Just send 3 or more pairs of worn-out tights to our recycling warehouse and let us recycle them for you.
If you send them to us we will offer you a 10% discount on your next purchase online. Just include your name and e-mail in the parcel along with your old tights.
Ship your old tights to:
Dear Denier - Peter Bangs Vej 53, st. 4 - 2000 Frederiksberg - Denmark
Remember to include your name and e-mail.
We have teamed up with scientists to figure out the best and most sustainable way to recycle tights to prevent them from ending up in landfills. The ultimate goal is of course to be able to make new tights from used tights.
Until we have found the solution, we will use the discarded tights for recycling experiments and to make other types of sustainable products.
All profits from the recycling initiative will be used to fund projects which aim to eliminate plastic from our planet.
To make it even easier for you to be part of the solution we are teaming up with retailers around the world and making our recycling bins and logistics available free of charge for them.
This gives you two opportunities to make sure that your old tights end up being recycled and not in landfills polluting our planet.
You can drop them off at one of the retailers participating in The Dear Denier Recycling Initiative or you can send them directly to us.
When dropping off your old tights at one of our recycling partners they will make sure that we receive the discarded tights.
Our recycling partners are joining the initiative every day and the list will soon be available so you can find a recycling partner close to you.
