#GetRedressed Month is returning in October 2019
Last October Redress launched our very first annual ‘Get Redressed Month', a fun and educational bilingual public awareness campaign that aims to put the issue of textile waste and circularity within fashion firmly on Hong Kong’s agenda.
We had a hugely successful launch year, engaging more people than ever before in our mission to get people thinking about their clothing consumption habits and how to pass on unwanted garments responsibly. You can read more about last year’s event here.
We were blown-away by the support we received from across the city and have really enjoyed hearing your stories of change. This October Get Redressed Month will be back and we are ready to make an even bigger impact.
Get Redressed Month 2019
Get Redressed Month 2019 invites you to be part of a local circular economy, learn about the real waste behind the fashion industry and make a difference. Title events include what we hope to be Hong Kong’s largest ever clothing drive, plus (new for 2019) an exciting 24 hour Sort-A-Thon festival where teams will volunteer in a festive atmosphere to make sure our donations are sorted and redistributed to the right channels while competing against each other to raise critical funding for Redress!
This year’s Get Redressed Month participants will span corporates, schools, clubs, the general public and big industry players in the fashion industry.

why are we fighting textile waste?
Fashion is widely cited as being one of the most polluting industries in the world, impacting everything from our land and water to the air we breathe.
Here in Hong Kong, our appetite for fashion continues to grow as does the sheer volume of clothes we dispose of. Our landfills are already running at capacity, and although Redress is working hard to drive change in both the industry and through our consumer habits; our textile waste is increasing.
If we want to reduce the impact the industry has on the planet, we need to collectively take action.
