If you have old jeans and want to buy a brand new pair for a good cause, then you can get a Levi`s jeans from the Lucky Department store.

You will get a special discount and your old jeans will be donated to an orphanage. They will re-use or recycle the old jeans, turning them into bags or purses.

And the purpose is to remind people of the quality and fabric strength of Levi`s – an old pair of jeans can be re-used by the children from the Mith Samlanch Organization.

DKSH (Cambodia) Ltd and Levi’s have adapted a philosophy of giving back to the community. So DKSH, which licenses Levi`s in Cambodia, will coordinate the donation programme.

Dathalineth would like to ask the customers to continue to support the company as well as the community by participating in a good cause like the “Swap Jeans” campaign that  will be running from the 1st until the 31st of August at Levi’s Licensed Store located inside Lucky Department store.
