Looking to recycle your unwanted clothes?
Your bag is empty.


Introducing our new takeback service with Thrift+ As part of our ongoing Conscious Connection initiatives, we have recently launched a partnership with Thrift+, a fuss-free takeback scheme and donation service where your best unwanted clothes are given a second life.

350,000 tonnes of used and unwanted clothing end up in landfill every year in the UK - so with help from Thrift+, we want to play our part in improving this and are committed to protecting our planet through positive changes.

Gain extra wardrobe space, raise funds for your chosen charity and earn a 10% discount from your next French Connection order. What’s not to love? And even better, Thrift+ are helping us on our journey to becoming a more responsible brand by collectively supporting circular fashion.


Is there a cost to me?
No there is absolutely no cost to you, our customer. Your Thrift+ bag is free and Thrift+ offer free returns from a number of UK locations. Find out more about return locations here.

What can I put in my Thrift+ Bag?
Thrift+ look for clothing, shoes and accessories from premium and designer brands, plus they also sell everyday high street brands, but these must be in new or excellent condition. Please note they do not accept underwear, swimwear and children’s or baby clothing. Please find out more here.

Can I donate low-end/supermarket branded clothes?
Low-end high street and supermarket brands do not sell well on Thrift+’s website. But please don’t throw these pieces away! Your local charity shop are able to raise valuable funds from these pieces by sending them to be recycled.

How much can I donate?
You'd be surprised how much you can fit in a Thrift+ bag – a good guide is a standard carry-on suitcase. You will receive one 10% off discount code per filled Thrift+ bag, which will be sent to your email once Thrift+ receives your clothing donation.

Is this service available outside the UK?
At the moment, the French Connection x Thrift+ takeback scheme is a UK only partnership. However, we are currently looking into international options to expand this circular fashion initiative globally.
