We want to create a platform for industry collaboration to create a more sustainable future for fashion. Through our industry engagement programmes, we collaborate across the entire fashion supply chain to catalyse positive change. We work with designers, textile and garment manufacturers, retailers, schools and universities, governments, NGOs and media organisations on seminars, workshops, research, retail collaborations and through our recycled textile standard.

During the 24 Hour Sort-a-thon we are aiming to sort through all of the clothing collected in the Get Redressed Clothing Drive (forecasted as over 10 tonnes) in just 24 hours, with the help of 25 teams of corporate volunteers. Over the whole 24-hour event (12pm Friday 22 November - 12pm Saturday 23 November), the 25 teams will simultaneously sort clothes to a fun backdrop of live music, great food and drinks whilst meeting new people, learning about the issue of textile waste in Hong Kong and directly benefiting people in need.
