Take part in our city-wide clothing drive spanning 100+ corporates, clubs, schools and the general public. Our educational clothing drive not only provides a direct solution to keep unwanted clothing in use for longer, it also acts as a platform to raise awareness about the environmental impact of fashion and create lasting change in consumer behaviour and disposal habits. We provide clothing donation boxes, promotional posters, educational materials and final impact reports, as well as handling all delivery, collection and redistribution logistics.

The clothing drive will culminate in our first ever Sort-A-Thon; a fun team building event to sort 10+ tonnes of donated clothing for resale, reuse, upcycling and recycling, while supporting 20+ local charity partners. Over a 24-hour period, 15 teams of corporate volunteers will simultaneously sort clothes to a fun backdrop of live music, great food and entertainment whilst meeting new people, learning about the issue of textile waste in Hong Kong and directly benefitting people in need.

Choose one day during Get Redressed Month to hold a ‘Get Redressed Day’ where students wear sustainable outfits to school, e.g. the oldest item in their wardrobe, an outfit borrowed from a friend or relative, an outfit purchased secondhand or an outfit they have up-cycled/made themselves.

We provide a downloadable education pack for teachers, including lesson plans and homework ideas with adaptations for all age groups.


WHY IS THE ISSUE OF TEXTILE WASTE IMPORTANT?

icons-05.png

The fashion industry causes 8% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, with fashion’s impact set to grow by more than 60% by 2030.

Around 370 tonnes of textiles are dumped into HK’s landfills every day.

It takes around 3,500+ litres of water to produce a single pair of jeans, equivalent to what an average person drinks in over 4 years.
