      Choice Textile logo

      Choice has served the charity sector since 1999; we have provided a consistently high level of service, have friendly and helpful drivers and have never missed a payment to any of our clients.

      Initially, along with other companies, Choice just collected textiles but in 2006 introduced the first ever book and other dry waste collection service for charities; at last, instead of unwanted books and other items going to landfill, the books were collected and recycled.

      Since then Choice has expanded this aspect of our work and hundreds of thousands of carefully selected text books and educational books have been put to one side and subsequently sent to schools and colleges in Africa.

      In 2015 a new charity was started by the Choice Managing Director so that the process of sending these much needed books to schools and colleges in Africa could be properly processed and monitored. And it is thanks in part to our partner charities that Choice is able to donate hundreds of thousands of older and unsold educational books to support educational programmes in Africa where each book become a most treasured possession.

      We have a dedicated Customer Service team and a senior manager with forty years direct experience in the charity sector.

      Please contact Choice on 020 8965 6699 or email info@choicetextile.com; we will be happy to meet you to discuss your requirements and demonstrate that we can provide an excellent service to your charity.

Most of the competition will say they use FSC board but Elle Media Group hold the certification…did you know you can check out if a supplier is FSC certified by putting their certification number in here www.info.fsc.org/certificate.php and all FSC product claims must carry a logo with their number on.

      They are the only charity greeting card publisher in the UK with an in-house design studio, card show room and state-of-the-art printing facility all under one roof. Elle Media Group actively encourage customers to visit their premises and even see their cards being printed in the factory.

      Through years of experience, working closely with some of the UK’s best known charities, Elle Media Group are proud to say they are experts in high return fundraising.

      They know that locally relevant designs can really offer a competitive edge, and quite simply there is no one who does this better than them.

      They are experts in bespoke commissions and have a fabulous design team on hand to work around the clock on designs to ensure your rough sketch or photo is transformed in to a truly wonderful work of art.

      But that’s not all, last year Elle Media Group became a member of Sedex (www.sedexglobal.com).  Sedex is home to one of the world’s largest collaborative platform for buyers, suppliers and auditors to store, share and report on information quickly and easily.  The platform is used by more than 38,000 members in over 150 countries to manage performance around labour rights, health & safety, the environment and business ethics.  This in itself shows their willingness to share and utilise information to help manage and improve ethical standards within the supply chain.

We now have a new strategy, management structure and sense of purpose.  We’re beating revenue targets, the staff have a smile on their faces and the charity is very pleased with the shops’ contribution.”

Queue times are also unaffected due to the speed with which donations can be processed. Donated items can be tracked with ease.

      Initially, along with other companies, Choice just collected textiles but in 2006 introduced the first ever book and other dry waste collection service for charities; at last, instead of unwanted books and other items going to landfill, the books were collected and recycled.

      Since then Choice has expanded this aspect of our work and hundreds of thousands of carefully selected text books and educational books have been put to one side and subsequently sent to schools and colleges in Africa.

      In 2015 a new charity was started by the Choice Managing Director so that the process of sending these much needed books to schools and colleges in Africa could be properly processed and monitored. And it is thanks in part to our partner charities that Choice is able to donate hundreds of thousands of older and unsold educational books to support educational programmes in Africa where each book become a most treasured possession.

      We have a dedicated Customer Service team and a senior manager with forty years direct experience in the charity sector.

      Please contact Choice on 020 8965 6699 or email info@choicetextile.com; we will be happy to meet you to discuss your requirements and demonstrate that we can provide an excellent service to your charity.

  • Refurbishing / Upcycling

    • Recycle Your Cycle
      Corporate Member

      Recycle Your Cycle Logo

      Recycle Your Cycle is a social enterprise working with the prison service to refurbish, bicycles and vacuum cleaners (Dysons & Henrys) and then sell these through the charity sector enabling charities to raise funds for their particular cause. We have set-up workshops at 7 prisons around the UK and planning more, plus workshops out of prison, that will be developed in partnership with charities.  In these workshops prisoners are trained in bicycle and vacuum cleaner repair and refurbishment, this helps with their rehabilitation and hopefully enables them to find employment upon their release. The charities then get the benefit of a quality refurbished product that sells for a good profit.

      We are looking to work with charity retailers who are interested in selling bicycles and vacuum cleaners in their stores, as these products offer good margin opportunity and are a differentiator from other charity shops.  In addition we are looking for charities who might be interested in opening bicycle workshops to provide work opportunities for their service users. For more information please visit our website.
