Lost Stock Campaign
Coronavirus caused over $2bn worth of clothes orders from leading brands to be cancelled in Bangladesh, with no payment being made to manufacturers. In a country that relies on clothing manufacturing for 84% of exports this is potentially putting millions of lives at risk!
With this situation we decided to act and created Lost Stock. A way in which workers can be supported, factories can generate much needed revenue and products can be saved from potentially ending up in landfill.
We offer consumers a box of cancelled products and for every box bought we support a worker and her family for a week through our partnership with leading Bangladeshi NGO the Sajida Foundation.
It’s a pretty simple concept - shoppers get clothes directly from the impacted factories that were destined for a range of stores and support a family in the process.
When launched in May our mission was to sell 10,000 boxes in the first month and hopefully 50,000 by the end of the year. After 5 months we’ve now sold nearly 120,000 boxes - allowing us to give significant support to tens of thousands of families at a time of real hardship for many garment workers. SAJIDA Foundation is helping those who need it most, with cash transfers to replace lost wages, with vouchers for food and essential supplies, and with a number of social initiatives to support families in need.
Offering Spring/Summer, Autumn/Winter and Kids collections there is a Lost Stock type for everyone.
Each box features at least 3 pieces, with kids getting a minimum of 5, in your size. We also try to match your style preferences but this can’t be guaranteed.
Lost Stock boxes start at just £35/€38 depending on your type. Each box focuses on tops, dresses and jumpers.
This is where we need your help…We want you to join our mission to generate 200,000 weeks worth of support by the end of the year!
To reach our goal we need your help to spread the word and make as much noise as we possibly can…
All we’re asking for you to do is talk about our mission and how people can get involved, directing them to the LostStock.com website and social media channels to consider buying a box, ideally tagging @Loststock_ on IG, IG Stories, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or on any digital platform. You can even go old school and just tell people in real life about Lost Stock.
Plus, you’ll be in great company, with over 350 influencers and global media already backing Lost Stock and our mission.
“One of the things that makes us proud to work in Fashion.”
Your support can make a real difference to some of the poorest people in the fashion supply chain at a time when many others have turned their backs on them…
Together we can make a real difference…
