Trade in any pre-loved luggage for a discount and a good sustainable cause
Samsonite is partnering up with the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) for a sustainability trade-in initiative that sees pre-loved luggage recycled into non-fossil derived fuel.
Travel may currently be disrupted and vacation plans are all but scuppered because of COVID-19. But this shouldn’t stop wander-lusters from planning for the future and stocking up on new luggage now.
Samsonite is once again running their luggage trade-in campaign this year, partnering up with the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) for a sustainability trade-in initiative that is aimed to benefit both the planet and traveller.
From now till March 31, customers can trade in pre-loved luggage of any brand and of any size at all Samsonite stores in Singapore to enjoy 30 per cent off the brand's Varro and Aspero ranges.
On top of that, with every trade-in purchase, Samsonite will donate S$10 to WWF Earth Hour which is scheduled to take place on March 28 at 8.30 pm this year.
All collected pre-loved luggage still in usable condition will be donated to charity to be given a second lease of life.
The rest is then recycled into non-fossil derived fuel, via a partnership between Samsonite and Singapore waste management firm Environmental Solutions Asia.
This is achieved by leveraging on advanced chemical recycling solution s that break down synthetic plastics, without the need to be cleaned or overly sorted , to create new materials.
In conjunction with Earth Hour, Samsonite will be switching off all non - essential lights in all its retail stores from 12.00pm to 1.00pm every Monday throughout the campaign period. The brand will, of course, also be switching off non-essential lights during Earth Hour itself on Mar 28.
