Actress Lindsay Lohan wants to swap her clothes… for charity.
The 21-year-old star of Mean Girls, Herbie Fully Loaded, Just My Luck, and The Parent Trap is encouraging shoppers in the UK to swap their unwanted clothes at the Visa Swap Shop store in Covent Garden, London, in support of TRAID – Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development.
“I am so excited to be involved with this year’s Visa Swap event,” said the actress. “The concept of swapping clothes, getting something for nothing and refreshing your wardrobe appeals to everyone. Ethical stories continue to dominate the news agenda and it’s great when fashion projects benefit charities.”
It is the second year the initiative – which involves people swapping their old clothes for points on their Visa card – has been run, and Lohan has already taken part in a photo shoot for the program. Last year’s campaign was headed by Mischa Barton.
“I had such a great time at the Visa Swap campaign shoot,” said Lohan. “The clothes I wore were all vintage designer pieces which you just don’t see every day!”
More information on how to get involved can be found on the TRAID website.
