Digital fashion platform Farfetch has unveiled a new service whereby customers can donate clothes and accessories they no longer use for free.

Run in partnership with “on-demand” donation platform Thrift+, the service will enable shoppers to order a donation bag online. When the bag arrives at their homes, it will come with instructions telling recipients to pack their unwanted items and to either book a free collection or drop the bag off at a local collection point.
The bags are then sent to Thrift+, which will list the contents for sale through its online platform. Once the item sells, the customer will receive one-third of the sale proceeds
