SHANGHAI, April 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leading Italian luxury designer outlet Florentia Village, announced today the launch of the sustainable care program “To Love, Together” in 2023 and firstly joined hands with Star.Bunny.Love Children’s Mental Health Care Action to help children with autism. At the same time, with its commitment to corporate social responsibility, Florentia Village will also organize a series of creative events, such as charity markets and autistic children’s art exhibitions to raise public awareness of autistic children. Mr. Jacopo De Vena, Managing Director of Florentia Village and RDM Asia, Ms. Serene Tang, Center Director of Florentia Village Shanghai, and Ms. Bonnie Chen, Initiators of the “To Love, Together” program, presented at the launch ceremony of the charity partnership.
Initiated by the model and actress Bonnie Chen in 2011, the Star.Bunny.Love program is an eco-friendly and care initiative that raises funds to help autistic children. Through exhibitions, charity markets, and other activities, Star.Bunny.Love has raised over 1 million RMB to support art therapy programs for autistic children for over a decade.
Autistic children, also known as “children from the stars”, are unable to communicate and live like normal children due to their condition. They are absorbed in their own world and disconnected from the others. “As the first cooperation of the annual sustainable public welfare project, we want to help children with needs”, said Jacopo De Vena, Managing Director of Florentia Village and RDM Asia, “Furthermore, we will integrate the unique resources of the village as well as customize diverse and creative activities and content for this partner initiative in order to offer enriched recreation and shopping experiences for customers while increasing public awareness of the community and promoting a more positive and a healthier lifestyle. Exciting events, such as autism children’s art exhibitions, charity markets and activities, are also forthcoming.”
In addition, Florentia Village has also partnered with renowned brands such as AIGLE, ANTEPRIMA, BROOKS BROTHERS, LANE CRAWFORD, MAX MARA, MICHAEL KORS and MLB, as well as the Istituto Marangoni, presented extraordinary themed fashion shows. WANACCESSORY, a London-based brand founded by a Chinese designer — Ms. Meng Yi Wan, renowned for its daring designs, also made appearances in the fashion shows, adding a unique charm to the event.
Over the years, Florentia Village has worked closely with partners and taken measures to fulfill corporate social responsibility in high standard.
In 2019, Florentia Village introduced sustainable packaging options on its ecommerce platform FVshop.com, to encourage the reusage of existing packaging for online orders. In addition, Florentia Village launched a new initiative involving B2B recycled polyester (rPET) specialist P.E.T. (Plastic Ecological Transformation) in a move to transform plastic bottle waste into textiles for the fashion industry. In 2022, Florentia Village recycled a total of 1,805 kg of plastic bottles. Furthermore, Florentia Village’s architectural designs also incorporate sustainability. The roof designs of Florentia Village Chongqing and Florentia Village Shanghai new phase use the same material structure as the National Aquatics Center, Beijing (or the “Water Cube”). A design that balances energy-saving and aesthetics that allows the buildings to let in more natural light, thereby reducing energy consumption and emissions.
The “To Love, Together” is a new initiative for sustainable charity by Florentia Village. In the future, Florentia Village will introduce more initiatives with partners to remain committed to promoting the highest level and standards of corporate social responsibility, thus creating closer connections and interactions between people as well as contributing to the charity’s cause.
