We are a Maltese NGO in the area of disability. However we also have a number of charity shops and we want to explore the possibility of raising awareness for thrifting with the aim of contributing to the circular economy. Thanks to our shops in Malta, we save a significant amount of material from clothes to books, kids’ toys, pushchairs, home decorations etc, from going to our landfills, and so these items are all given a new life.

However, thrifting and 2nd hand is still seen as the poor man’s (or woman’s) option and we want to educate the Maltese community about the benefits of thrifting, raise the awareness towards the need for everyone to contribute to a circular economy. Do you think this could be an area where you would be interested to collaborate?
