Support the circular economy by choosing to shop with us
Clarecare operates two thrift shops – one in Ennis and one in Killaloe. These Thrift Shops are a really important part of the service Clarecare provides.
- We offer individuals a chance to contribute to recycling by donating clothing, footwear, accessories, furniture and a variety of small household items. This act of recycling serves to curtail waste and environmental impact while also creating employment opportunities.
- Our Thrift Shops afford numerous people the means to purchase clothing and furniture at budget- friendly rates.
- The proceeds generated from our Thrift shops are directly reinvested into advancing the delivery of Clarecare’s services across County Clare.
Did you know that 10,000 litres of water could provide enough for one person to drink for 10 years?
And that it takes 10,000 litres of water to grow one kilo of cotton needed to produce just one pair of jeans?
Even an ordinary cotton T-shirt needs 2,700 litres of water.
So it makes sense to donate your no-longer-wanted clothes to our thrift shops and buy second-hand from them too.
What you can Donate to our Thrift Shops:
Bags and accessories
Jewellery and valuables
What you can’t donate:
Homewares: china, kitchenware, ornaments, pictures
Soft furnishings: small rugs, linen, curtains
Wedding dresses and accessories
I have a couple of good quality designer coats that I still wear and it’s a bonus to know that when I spend my money there it is going back into the community through ClareCare.
