Did you know that?
Clothing accounts for 10% of consumers’ total environmental impact. In Scandinavia, each person throws 8 kg of textiles in the garbage yearly.
The most ecologically efficient way to dispose textile is to reuse it! One kilo of reused clothes saves the environment 5 kg of CO2.

Product data for the Textile Tower
Norge Gir provided textile tower: Dimensions 115x 115 x 220 cm. Weight 160 kg. Color: blue. (Ultramarine)
The container has a bottom dimension of only 1.3 m2, and takes up little space
The container is affixed to streamers on the front and side pieces with name and contact information.
Most of the clothes we get in the textile towers are in good condition and carefully packed in plastic bags, so that it is clean and dry. Any loose clothing is packed in plastic bags by our drivers. The clothes are packed unsorted in storage containers / trailers. Only waste is removed before packing. The trailers are currently exported to Humana’s sorting center in Lithuania or to buyers in Poland. The clothes are sorted into many different categories, according to quality, type and season. Depending on the category, the clothes are resold for reuse in the east or south, where they are used as they are, as clothes for people. The result of recycling in this way is, among other things, that we achieve a very high utilization of the clothes and thus a very low waste and environmental impact. Every kilo of recycled clothes saves the environment 5 kilos of CO2.
If you have special plans, we are solution-oriented. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Pick-up service – door to door
The pandemic brought new challenges in everyone’s life.
Norge Gir understands that some of us would like to avoid busy places or simply it is harder to find free time to deliver clothes to the collecting containers.
To take-off weight from people ‘s shoulder, we developed our Pick-Up Service. We are providing for borettslag, stores, schools and kindergartens and companies, a contact free service.
It is an easy, green and safe solution for everyone. After consulting with the leaders of the institutions, we place posters and announce on Social Media platforms the next pick-up event.
In addition to being environmentally conscious, this is a good reputation and a great example for your organization and your children.
Some of the organisations that already made a step towards an easier clothes donation:
Kidsa: Ovre, Breisten, Inndalen
Polan & Pyret Lagunen
In addition to borettslags like Løvåsen , Nordås, Vestlund, Ovstunn, Kleivhaugen in Bergen and Mariåsen Borettslag in Arendal.
Our pick-up can be organized as a monthly or seasonal service, or occasionally right after your wardrobe cleaning. If you have a residential community with the need and consciousness about environment, just call us or write to e-mail address, four weeks in advance!
The closer to the wardrobe – the easier, safer and greener!
