Many people choose to donate their old clothes to charity, but negative news about the private sale of donated clothes is causing them to lose confidence in the current system. RECY-CLO is a transparent clothing donation system that allows users to select the intended charity and tracks the progress of the donation.
The process is managed through a mobile application, and users can earn points for successful donations, which can be used to redeem textiles made from recycled fabrics. The clothing donation bin has a glass window to facilitate easy checking of donation levels. Each bin also has a QR code, which new users can scan for registration. The donation bags, which are also made from recycled clothes, come in three sizes. They can be reused and have a unique QR code that users can scan to register their donation.
