Parker Lane started a business in 2010 based on the ideals of individuals who wanted to make a difference within their communities. That commitment to caring for our communities, our environment, and each other remains a fundamental part of who we are and what we do.
Over the years Parker Lane evolved from collecting and processing used clothing to recognising inflection points in purchasing trends caused by a move from “bricks” to “clicks”.
We identified pinch points in retailers’ supply chains caused by aggressive marketing strategies and liberal returns policies.
Parker Lane understands the value proposition in handling returns efficiently on an SKU level in a safe, controlled and ethical way to limit value erosion and provide visibility in a complex commercial world.
Our tacit experience from salvaging value from used clothing enables us to extract a return from all quality profiles of returns. Our diverse and brand adolescent markets have been effective in providing secure solutions for retailers with large multinational footprints concerned with brand contamination. Our recycling arm also adds a layer of support and solutions for ethical destruction of garments.

To Parker Lane, the UK is far more than a place to do business. It’s our home in every sense of the word. Because of this, we have a natural interest in the welfare of the region and its people, and in doing what we can to help make it an even better place to live and work.
Long before ‘green’ was in, we’ve been mindful of our impact on the environment. Being environmentally responsible is a critical part of being a good corporate citizen and a good neighbour.
