Do It

Help a Lonely Glove Find Love


In a bid to reduce waste and encourage people to rethink their rubbish, we collect up all the lost and lonely single gloves that get dropped and forgotten. We then wash and pair these gloves to make new, not quite matching but just as warming and wonderful, pairs of gloves. We call it Glove Love. And we're always on the look out for more gloves to save. Next time you see a single glove out in the wild, pick it up and send it in to us using our address.

    This is so creative! Is there any place to drop off the glove in the US?

      Hi Lindsey, we're glad you like it! Unfortunately there is not a US

        Woops. Sorry about that. There is not a US drop off point unfortunately. We do accept donations from all over the world but obviously the cost involved often makes that inappropriate. We have had a few people interested in setting up a version of Glove Love in the US so who knows, there might be a program you send them to in America sooner than you think!

    It would cost more to send odd gloves to England than it is worth. Can you find them an American affiliate. Maybe I should ask my local no freeze shelter if they can take in odd gloves and mittens and find them mates so they can be given to their clients.

      We're looking into kits that people can use to set up their own Glove Love programme where they are. That way Glove Love can go global and gloves everywhere will get their second chance!
      Giving them to local homeless charities is a lovely idea in the meantime :-)
