Monsoon Campaign - Clothes for Life

Another national high street retailer taking action to encourage consumers to reuse, pass on and donate their unwanted clothing.

Monsoon have launched the 'Clothes for life' campaign
where you will receive a £5 voucher for future purchases of Monsoon clothing (over £30) when you take to the store and donate items of unwanted Monsoon clothing.

The money raised from the resale of these clothes will help support the NewLife Foundation.

Initiatives like this provide fantastic potential source material for Upcycling designers. Maybe to make more people aware of the scheme Monsoon could pass on some of the clothing to Upcycling designers/student designers to create unique garment designs from unwanted Monsoon clothing. The remade and one off pieces would be of a higher value and able to raise more money for the charity.

    Can i give them my accesorize 90 denier Black opaque Tights..? i have quite a few old pairs lying around that i no longer wear.

  2. No, I don't think so as this is a campaign specific to Monsoon, Accessorize is a slightly seperate business. Although there really should be a route that doesn't end up in Landfill for worn out underwear and tights that can't be passed on!
