Lost Stock is a new UK initiative aimed at tackling waste in the fashion industry, an issue especially problematic during the COVID-19 pandemic which forced retailers to cancel orders. To ensure this appeal is not sent to landfills, Lost Stock is selling "surprise boxes" that come directly from the factories, made for well-known brands that were forced to cancel their orders, such as Topshop or C&A. Each surprise box includes three shirts based on your sizing preference.
The boxes are priced at 39 pounds each (including postage costs) and boast an estimated sales value of at least 70 pounds. In addition, Lost Stock is donating 40 % of the proceeds from the sale of the boxes directly to factory workers.
