Electrolux + Trese: From Worn Out Clothes to Quilts

As weekend sales and bazaars usher the coming Christmas season, do consider clearing out your closets before starting your shopping spree.   What to do with your pre-loved clothes?  Well, DONATE them to Electrolux Clothes Donation Drive, of course! Why Electrolux?  Aside from Electrolux actively doing this advocacy for several years now…

  1. They’re the only ones that I know that actually launders (washes and inspects each piece of clothing) donated clothes before distributing them to those in need.
  2. Even worn-out clothes that were donated are put to good use.

Electrolux has partnered with Gawad Kalinga’s Trese to transform clothes that are not fit for wearing into quilts for children and new born babies in orphanages.

“Electrolux believes that there must be dignity in the clothes that we donate. To make sure that every piece of clothing is in good condition, we will sort out the worn out, unwearable ones, then upcycle them into quilts with the help of Trese”

That favorite shirt of yours that you’ve worn a hundred times until it was all frayed in the collar or until you became several sizes bigger? As long as the rest of the fabric is still in good condition, donate it.

That pair of jeans that has been lying at the bottom of your cabinet for the past couple of years – donate it.

Those dresses and shirts your little ones have outgrown – donate them.

Clothes were meant to be worn and not kept in eternal storage, so please do DONATE those you have not worn for years.  Be a part of this meaningful advocacy. Drop off your donations in any of these locations:

  • Electrolux Customer Service Hub (Grundfos Building, 5548 Osmena Highway, Brgy. San Isidro, Makati City)

Electrolux transforms worn out clothes into quilts with GawadKalinga’sTrese

Filipinos have relentlessly proven that the concept of bayanihan is still alive today. Every year the Philippines is devastated by numerous typhoons which result to ruined homes and ravaged livelihood. From one calamity to another, Filipinos have made it a tradition to donate and help rehabilitate the lives of the victims.

Sharing with this tradition, Electrolux, a global leader in home appliances, has been collecting and laundering clothes for calamity-stricken survivors for several years now. This year, Electrolux, through its Delightful-E Simple campaign, innovated this long-running advocacy.

Together with Gawad Kalinga’s Trese community, Electrolux will upcycle unusable clothes into quilts for children and new born babies in orphanages and other communities.

“Electrolux believes that there must be dignity in the clothes that we donate. To make sure that every piece of clothing is in good condition, we will sort out the worn out, unwearable ones, then upcycle them into quilts with the help of Trese” said Andrea Pionilla, Electrolux Marketing Manager. “With this partnership, we aim not only to give quilts to children and new born babies but also another source of livelihood for this Payatas community.”
