Millican launches ‘Re-Home Your Bag’ project

Sustainable accessories brand Millican is looking to re-home old,
unwanted bags as part of a new initiative to support social projects and
communities locally and globally.

The Keswick-based brand is asking the public to send their unwanted
bags, from backpacks to messenger bags, to them, where they will fix and
repair them before sending them on to people who need them, while also
supporting charities including The Calvert Trust, Action for Conservation
and the Bristol Bike Project.

Millican co-founder Jorrit Jorritsma, said in a statement: “Everyone
seems to have an old, well-used rucksack or travel bag languishing in their
garage or loft. Still very practical, you just can’t seem to let go of
them. The ‘Re-Home’ project allows you to pass your old travel companion on
to someone who really needs it, to start a new adventure.

“As well as giving back to the community, we’re always considering
different ways of increasing a product’s life-span and how we can take
responsibility for its afterlife. The Re-Home Your Bag project is an
important part of this ongoing process of learning, sharing and innovating
for a better future.”

In return for sending your bag off to Millican, the sustainable
accessories brand will send customers a 5 percent discount.

In addition, Millican promises to keep the customer updated on the
journey of their bag to one of the social projects so they can see the bags
“journey full circle”.
