Good Health & Well-being is one of the UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of Lingaro Group’s sustainability strategy. For good health and wellbeing, access to clean water is about as essential as it gets! That’s we're running a used clothing drive with Polish charity Ubrania do Oddania (Clothes to Give Away) to raise funds helping the Polish Humanitarian Action provide people in need with safe drinking water and sanitation facilities. 1kg of used clothes collected = 1 Polish zloty donated!
There are three UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of the Lingaro Group Sustainability Program:
Good Health & Well-being
Here with Ubrania do Oddania we are supporting two of these goals with one initiative!
By encouraging people to recycle their used clothes, we're taking Climate Action to support "circular fashion" as opposed to the "fast fashion" business model that leads to a great deal of environmental pollution.
And when Ubrania do Oddania puts money – based on the amount of clothes we donate – towards the Polish Humanitarian Action's efforts to provide clean water (which is part of the environment most impacted by pollution from fast fashion) and sanitation to those in need, we are supporting a fundamental step towards these people's Good Health and Well-being.
A classic win-win scenario for a great cause!
