marie claire and Oxfam partner up

Use marie claire's free designer bag to fight poverty with style

Oxfam and marie claire have teamed up this month to provide readers with a gorgeous FrostFrench bag – another push to cut plastic bag wastage.

We’re very excited about bringing two inspirational philosophies together – marie claire’s Fashion with heart philosophy encourages readers to take small collective actions such as these, to Oxfam’s Fashion loved for longer great fashion labels donated by you, brought to your local Oxfam shop in your chic new bag!

This stylish shopper is ideal for everyday use. By filling it with your unwanted items – from clothing and accessories to books and DVDs and taking them to your local Oxfam store, you’ll help raise vital funds to tackle poverty. Who’d have thought that last season’s jacket could help provide training for midwives in Yemen or school books for children in Malawi?

You’ll also be saving clothes from landfill sites. One million tonnes of clothing are sent to landfill in the UK every year.

What’s more, as part of the M&S and Oxfam Clothes Exchange, if your bag contains at least one item of clothing from M&S, you’ll receive a £5 discount voucher per visit, to use with your next purchase over £35 on Clothing, Home and Beauty in M&S stores.

This celebration of ecological chic echoes Oxfam’s desire for a sustainable world and we hope marie claire readers will carry their FrostFrench Oxfam bag with pride, showing that together we can make a difference.
