JT Recruit is working in partnership with a UK organisation who have been in the business of selling second-hand clothing and accessories for more than 25 years.

Many of their customers also want EOL s product which would be sold by the weight or bulk amounts by sea containers or truck loads. Through their charity contacts, they have been able to source EOL s products. However, this is not a constant and large enough supply. There is a demand for at least 5 to 10 sea containers a month.
