Donations are one manifestation of the circular economy


Donations are one manifestation of the circular economy – discontinued products are delivered from our warehouses as donations to those in need, and at the same time space is freed for new products

For over a year, we have been offering a free “From waste to charity” service to all our customers who have entrusted the warehousing of their products with us. We collect the products selected by our customers at our warehouses free of charge and deliver them free of charge to selected and validated charitable organizations in Finland, and in exceptional cases also abroad.

“The common perspectives we share with our customers are ethics, the environment, the circular economy and cost savings,” says Katja Vuorenheimo, Head of Quality at Transval.

Ethics, the environment and costs meet the circular economy

As a responsible player, we want to do our part to help those who need help, and we encourage our partners and customers to do the same. Together with our customers, we promote the circular economy and reduce the amount of waste through donations.

At the same time, we save waste management costs together.

What can be donated?

Together with our customers, we have donated, for example, new sports clothing, food and Easter eggs to low-income families with children in Finland, pet food to animal welfare societies and three truckloads of wound care products for those in dire need of them.

Products that can be donated include usable online store returns and seasonal products from the past season. Other examples are products that are nearing their use-by date, final batches of products, sample stock products or products whose packaging has an old design or has been damaged, for example during transport.

We select the receiving charitable organization together with the customer.

Play your part and join the effort – let’s make the world a little better place to be and live.
