Last updated: 20 April 2021
MANRAGS is a finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Small and Medium Enterprises category.

MANRAGS Textile Recycling Initiative

Upon learning about the amount of textile waste generated by Australians each year, MANRAGS undergarments decided to take responsibility for the entire life-cycle of their products and launch its sock recycling program.

They first partnered with a Victorian textile recycler to learn about the process, then engaged a packaging company to supply printed compostable satchels for customers to mail back old and unwanted socks.

Since launching in September 2019, a community of 40,000 members have saved 13,000kg of socks from going to landfill.
