On one hand, it presents a great example to the entire retail sector on how every organization can do its bit while on the other hand, more importantly, it gives every customer a chance to do something for others. In the process a lot of clothes will be prevented from going to landfills, instead they will play a new role in triggering dignity and development in the world.
