If Coronavirus doesn’t kill my workers, then starvation will.
This quote from a factory owner in Bangladesh was the starting point for Lost Stock. We wanted to support workers and families who were facing starvation as brands cancelled stock and refused to pay up.
From our initial goal of supporting 10,000 workers, we've now sold over 115,000 Lost Stock boxes, and supported over 115,000 families with food and vital supplies for one week.
Support for 117125 families and counting.
At a truly horrible time in the world, you decided to do something different:
You decided to shop for good
You decided to help a family that really needed it
You decided to stop brand new clothes from ending up in landfill
Thank you - from the bottom of our hearts - for making that decision.
Let's not stop now. Let's take better care of the people who make our clothes, and of our planet. Our goal is to support 250,000 families by the end of the year. That means saving over 1 million products from ending up in landfill. With your support, we can do it. Find out how you can help!

We want to end the toxic returns cycle that causes so much damage.
Please don’t return your box. It severely limits how many people we can help. We are only able to accept complete packages back (everything in your Lost Stock box) and we can only refund the product cost.
There are many other options to consider - donating, swapping or upcycling. If, despite all this, you absolutely have to return your Lost Stock box, please use the help button to get in touch with our customer service team. Our returns policy is here.
Now is the time to build a new way of shopping, together. Let's change the way we buy, so we can put people and our planet before profits.
After providing over 115,000 weeks of support for garment workers in need, we want to make even more of an impact. Our goal is to help 250,000 families by the end of 2020, and to create a whole new way to shop - but we need your support to do that!
The next time you want to buy something new - order from Lost Stock so that your shopping makes a difference. Check out our Autumn / Winter collection, buy kidswear, or order another Lost Stock box. It will be something different, guaranteed!
