Seams For Dreams Founder Evelyn Sharma has been in Abu Dhabi shooting for an upcoming film called Saaho. While on her trip, the actor couldn’t help but notice all the amazing work that was being done in sustainability in the UAE. Here are some noteworthy organizations that truly embrace the Seams For Dreams spirit of recycling, reusing, and upcycling pre-loved clothes.
Whoever thought a Facebook group could have so much impact? This group has over 50,000 members and allows its members to post anything they are willing to give away for free to either swap, trade, donate, or simply give away in the name of helping people and the planet!
This organization literally takes the junk right from underneath you and puts it to good use to refurbish it. This unique service will take your old appliances, electronics and furniture and restore it and sell it to lower-income households or just donate it to someone in need!
This NGO is a huge organization that does a lot of work for children’s education. The organization provides primary education for children in over 38 countries worldwide. Not only do they provide education, but they collect clothing donations and have donation drop centers all around the shopping malls. This clothing comes in need for the less fortunate, especially during times of crisis.
This company has the largest loading dock at the airport and this dock is used for clothing donations that would otherwise be filling up landfills. This is a charitable effort where old clothes get a new lease on life by helping others in need, even internationally!
Through its humanitarian efforts, the NGO collects clothing donations to help orphans along with others in need of aid and assistance. This is another large charity that works with many countries apart from the UAE.
Keep giving in style!
