If you're a regular shopper at Monsoon then you definitely need to know about this new scheme they are running. If you have Monsoon clothing you no longer need then you can donate it back to your local store and receive a £10 Monsoon voucher in return!
What Is Clothes For Life?
Clothes for Life is Monsoon's fashion recycling initiative. It is part of their ongoing commitment to look after the planet, help prevent unwanted clothes going to landfill and give back to causes.
How does it work?
What happens to my unwanted clothes?
Your clothes will be
donated to charity to be sold or recycled, with all profits going
towards Newlife, a charity dedicated to changing the lives of disabled
and terminally ill children across the UK. Their work includes:
- Supporting thousands of families in urgent need of essential community equipment, such as beds, buggies, wheelchairs and seating systems.
- This helps improve child health, reduce risk of significant pain and injury, and enables childhood experiences.
Why is it important to recycle my clothes?
Each year in the UK, £140 million worth of unwanted yet wearable clothing goes to landfill. That’s a total of around 350,000 tonnes. By choosing to recycle your clothes, you’ll be reducing your environmental footprint, as well as extending the lifespan of the clothes that you no longer wear.
So next time you go to throw away those unwanted Monsoon clothes remember to pop along to your local store and get yourself a £10 voucher to spend on some new threads!
