// Mallzee launch mystery clothing boxes with profits going to Bangladeshi garment workers unemployed due to Covid19
// Lost Boxes include garments from Topshop, New Look & Gap
Start-up fashion app Mallzee has teamed up with the Sajida Foundation to launch Lost Stock, a mystery clothing box service to help Bangladeshi factory workers.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, billions of pounds worth of stock orders were cancelled by retailers, leaving tonnes of new garments unable to be sold and Bangladeshi garment workers unemployed.
Lost Stock boxes cost £35 for over £70 worth of new clothing from retailers including Topshop, New Look and Gap.
The boxes take between four and six weeks to arrive while the profits go towards feeding a garment worker and their family for one week.
Customers can specify their size, gender and tastes so the box is tailored to their style.
The goal is to support 5000 families in May and 100,000 by the end of 2020.
To date, 3000 boxes have already been sold.
The Sajida Foundation works across 26 districts of Bangladesh by providing food and hygiene packages, and distributing PPE kits and portable hand washing devices amid the pandemic.
