At Simbithi, we are passionate about Community Social Investment (CSI) and support our surrounding communities as often as we can. Mandela Day, however, gives us a chance to do something extra special!
This year, we have partnered with a great initiative called Clothes to Good (CTG) , an organization that recycles pre-loved and new clothing, shoes and retail apparel: using what others may consider “waste” to create positive social impact.
For their 2021 campaign, CTG has partnered with retail giant H&M to create Clothes to Trees: Love our Planet Programme, which empowers women through micro-business development, creates jobs for people with disabilities and creates educational resources for children in low-resourced early childhood development (ECD) centres. The programme also ensures that pre-loved clothing does not end up in landfill sites, contributing to the fashion industry being the second highest polluter, globally.
Here’s how it works:
It’s that simple!
If you would like to fill more than one bag, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for you to collect.
For every bag you fill, you will earn a 15% discount voucher from H&M!
As part of this year’s initiative, you will also receive a Spekboom tree to plant. You may either keep your tree to plant at your home or pay-it-forward to one of the eight schools Simbithi supports through Partners for Possibility.
