Outlander star Sam Heughan encourages Scots to #PassItOn and recycle clothes for charity
OUTLANDER star Sam Heughan has donated some of his old clothes to The Empty Shop, a pop up store encouraging people to recycle.
The star joined Scots model and actress Eunice Olumide, to launch Pass It On Week from March 5 – 13.
The initiative aims to encourage behavioural change to help keep the things we use in circulation for longer by passing on, swapping, sharing or donating them.
Sam, who stars in the Amazon Prime blockbuster, said: “In contrast to travelling back in time – as my Outlander character Jamie does – this is all about taking action to help Scotland in the future. I’m proud that Scotland is leading the way when it comes to minimising waste and making things last.
“I hope we can inspire people to pass on items of clothing they no longer use instead of just binning them. By passing on items such as clothing, toys and furniture, and buying vintage or second-hand, we can all help to reduce our impact on the planet.”
