Perekrestok collects used items for donation and recycling

Perekrestok and its partner Zelenaya Kaplya, an organisation that collects used items, have collected over 40 tonnes of items for donation via special containers installed in 13 Perekrestok supermarkets in Moscow during the year.

The containers are intended for used clothes, footwear, toys, bags, belts, skates and roller skates, and textiles that have been pre-washed or cleaned and packed into a bag.

Since the launch of the project, 70% of collected items were given a second life and sent to second-hand stores.
Revenue from the items sold at second-hand stores were donated to Foodbank Rus, an organisation that provides humanitarian aid to seniors who live alone, multi-child families, and low-income families with children.
