Samsonite Malaysia Collaborates with Kloth Cares in Taking Recycling to the Next Level


Well, Malaysia’s recycling rate is currently at 24% with hopes of reaching 30% by 2030. The clothing industry is the second largest polluter after oil and gas, with textile waste in Malaysia estimated to be at 4% of total municipal solid waste - equivalent to a total of 2,000 metric tonnes or two million kilograms per day. Samsonite Malaysia, the world’s largest and most recognized luggage brand has taken its recent successful Trade-In campaign to the next level by collaborating with Kloth Cares, a Malaysian social entrepreneurship movement dedicated to Keep Fabrics Out of Landfills through re-using, recycling and re-purposing.

As the first luggage company in Malaysia to champion the recycling practice, Samsonite Malaysia continued its initiative to raise awareness on environmental concerns and encouraged Malaysians to recycle with the aim of spreading love for the environment by moving forward towards green initiatives.

During the recent Luggage Trade-In campaign, Samsonite collected more than 100 used luggage, which will be sent to Kloth Cares for recycling or, if they are still in fairly good condition, to be refurbished and donated to underserved communities such as National Cancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA) and Sunteck Handicapped Welfare Home.

On average, Kloth Cares collects more than 500,000 tonnes of fabric daily in Malaysia, which include more than 85,000kg of unwanted fabrics, bags and toys collected through recent initiatives with various collaborative partners.

With the aim of bringing eco-friendly products to the market, Samsonite recently introduced its New Eco Collection for the Asian market. The products under the range, named SPARK SNG ECO, OCTO ECO and MARCUS ECO, are now available in Malaysia and is made with Recyclex™ - an innovative fabric technology using recycled plastic (PET) bottles which it has developed.

The Samsonite Luggage Trade-In Campaign was held from 1st March to 14th April 2019, in collaboration with WWF-Malaysia in support of WWF’s Earth Hour campaign.
