RECYCLING IS EASY, RIGHT? Wrong. We all know that the fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. After the oil industry, it’s actually the second largest pollutant in the world and as the industry is ever-growing and fast fashion becomes the norm, so is the inevitable environmental damage. But even though we are aware of the problem, knowing what you can do can be really difficult, here’s how you can help!
&OtherStories have made it super easy to do your bit to help and are also rewarding people who do! Their in-store recycling program means you can return any empty beauty packaging, pre-loved garments or textiles to any of the &OtherStories locations and you will receive 10% discount on your next in-store purchase.
They are accepting donations from any brand (dig out those old socks or tattered towels), and using them as insulation material for the construction materials industry, stuffed toys, shoe insoles and much more! All you need to do is fill up a bag with your garments and bring it to your closest store to receive your discount.
Their Beauty range is also sustainable and you can bring any of your empty packaging or containers to a store to receive a discount for your next purchase! They are then recycling all the old containers to make more. It’s so easy, you get money off and you’re helping the environment, what’s not to like!
