Uniqlo has just mounted a global campaign called JOIN: THE POWER OF CLOTHING, kicking off in Japan on July 1, 2022.

The apparel company brings a program to raise awareness about ocean pollution. The campaign aims to encourage customers to take part in the company’s sustainability activities through initiatives conducted at Uniqlo stores and at the online store.

Buy and JOIN

The first initiative, dubbed Buy and JOIN, allows customers to support donations with their purchases of products. This includes items that are incorporating recycled material, along with the products dressed in the Doraemon Sustainability Mode motif. Of course, the environmentally-friendly Blue Cycle Jeans are included in the program.

For every purchase, the company will donate up to US$1 million from the profits of campaign sales to the Nippon Foundation, in support of reducing ocean waste.

Learn and JOIN

The second initiative — Learn and JOIN — invites customers to find out more about ocean pollution through special content.

Uniqlo opened a special website where visitors can learn about environmental issues and take action. The site includes messages from Uniqlo Global Brand Ambassadors calling for participation in the campaign. Also, Haruka Ayase, LifeWear Special Ambassador, outlines some of the sustainability focus areas at Uniqlo through a video.

Moreover, there’s also a wide range of special content to learn about ocean-related issues. There’s an interview with a biological oceanographer, Ryota Nakajima, a talk with Ms. Yoko Koga on reducing the use of plastics in everyday life, and an interview with environmental specialist Dr. Keith Alverson.

Claudia Kim plays Maeda, who is the wife of a powerful official in Gyeongseong during the colonial period. The actress has been active on the global stage through the films Avengers: Age of Ultron and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and the Netflix Series Marco Polo.

Wi Ha-jun, who made a lasting impression on worldwide audiences with his role in Squid Game and is currently winning over viewers in Little Women, plays Gwon Jun-taek, Tae-sang’s best friend. He joins Tae-sang’s dangerous plan in rescuing the people who have gone missing.
