As part of our CSR activities, during the months of March and September UNIQLO CO LTD recycles any UNIQLO product brought in by customers to our stores.
This third campaign held since September 2006 is being called “Thank You Recycle” as an expression of gratitude to participating customers.
In the last campaign held in March 2007, we collected 300,000 items, 80% of which will be donated as relief supplies to refugee camps in Uganda and other African countries where the need for clothing is strong.
UNIQLO CO LTD has been collecting and recycling its own used fleece products since September 2001. And we have gradually expanded the scope of these activities to now include the full UNIQLO product range.
Since September 2006, we have conducted a regular, reliable collection and recycling service during the months of March and September.
The clothes that we collect from participating customers are recycled as fuel or fiber materials, or reused as relief clothing. And we are keen to pursue these meaningful activities to the very best of our ability.
