This is how Samara’s Aid defines “new” and “used” – remember that all items are given as gifts.
“new” in packaging/on hanger/with tags still attached.
“used” freshly laundered/cleaned items, no marks, holes, wear, buttons missing, zips working. This is because new packers will be on board and we wish to simplify matters.
Remember that the bar is set much higher than what we might wear for “old” or what we might buy from a charity shop. Why? They are gifts of love to traumatised people who probably have minimal access to laundry or sewing facilities. Each item must be worth its place in the lorry or container, which costs over £6,000 to send. Something that will wear out quickly is a waste of the space.
