Hong Kong’s Biggest Clothing Drive

The Get Redressed Clothing Drive spans over 100 corporates, clubs, schools and the general public.

Throughout October Redress is running a city-wide clothing drive to collect and repurpose unwanted clothing from over 100 corporates, clubs, schools and public donation points across Hong Kong. Join the city-wide effort to tackle the growing issue of textile waste and build a greener Hong Kong.

24 Hour Sort-a-thon
22-23 November 2019

The 24 Hour Sort-a-thon is a fun and educational corporate volunteer experience like no other.

The 24 Hour Sort-a-thon is a relay volunteering event where 25 corporate teams will join Team Redress to continuously sort clothing for 24 hours, redistributing it for resale, re-use by our 20+ charity partners, upcycling, recycling and downcycling. We aim to sort all clothing donations received from the Get Redressed Clothing Drive within a 24 hour period.

Organise a 'Get Redressed Day'

Dedicate a day to wear your most sustainable outfit to school or work - like something you bought second hand, the oldest item in your wardrobe, or something you borrowed from a friend!

We’ve put together a Get Redressed Day pack with everything you need to organise a Get Redressed Day including posters and instructions for teachers and students.

Align with UN Sustainable Development Goal 12

Taking part in Get Redressed Month helps to align with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 12, Responsible Production and Consumption, which has been identified as a priority for Hong Kong. 

If the global population reaches 9.6 billion by 2050 we will need the equivalent of almost three planets to sustain our current lifestyles. SDG 12 is about ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns in order to prevent over-extraction of resources and protect the environment from degradation.
