制服大變身

UNIFORMS REBORN

Discovery - - CURATED 精心之選 -

LIKE MOST SERVICE industries, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon go through a lot of fabric each year, with most of it used for staff uniforms. Like the crew that wear them, the fabric is very hardworking; but they don’t last forever.

To tackle the issue of uniform recycling, Cathay Pacific is partnering with environmental charity Redress, which organises the annual EcoChic Design Award. EcoChic is a sustainable fashion design competition encouraging participants to create sustainable clothing with minimal waste.

As part of this year’s event, Cathay Pacific proposed a challenge for the 10 EcoChic finalists: design a sustainable product using old staff uniforms.

In addition to the EcoChic challenge, Cathay Pacific has partnered with Angus Tsui – a previous EcoChic winner – to create a series of innovative lai see packet designs out of the iconic red uniform fabric. Traditionally made from paper, these Well Travelled Lai See (right) are a beautifully crafted alternative, which can also be reused as travel wallets. The profits will be donated to Feeding Hong Kong, a local charity.

Prian Chan, assistant manager, sustainable development at Cathay Pacific, says: ‘ We’re excited to be collaborating with Redress, Angus and St James’ Settlement. Our Well Travelled Lai See, as well as being a memorable gift for loved ones next Chinese New Year, are a wonderful way to support the Feeding Hong Kong charity.’

The limited edition lai see packets, available to Hong Kong shoppers only, are now available on the Discover The Shop website – see cathaypacific.com/dutyfree/ homedelivery for more details.

跟大部分服務行業一樣,國泰航空及國泰港龍每要航空 年都 使用大量布料,其中大部分用於縫製員工制服。制服選用的布料雖然質用地耐,但卻無法永不磨損。

為了解決將舊制服循環再用的問題,國泰航空與保善環 慈 團體Redress合作。Redress每年舉行衣「 酷適再生時尚設計」大獎,這是一個可持續發展時裝設計,比賽 鼓勵參加者以盡量減廢的方式設計出可持續發衣展的 服。

國泰航空參與今屆的大獎活動,向十位衣「 酷適再生時尚設計決」總 賽參賽者提出一個大考驗,請他們以舊的員工制服,設計一款可持續發展的產品。

除了參與「衣酷適再生時尚設計」大獎之外,國泰又與在曾 該比賽中獲獎的設計師徐逸昇合作,推出一系列極具創意的利是 封。傳統的利是封是紙製品,而「伴你翺翔環保利是」則以紅色制服布料製成(上方) ,在新年後過 ,仍可繼續使用,變例如成行錢旅小產。 品出售後的利潤將捐贈本地慈善團體樂餉。社

國泰航空助理環境事務經理陳伯翰說:「們我 很高興能與Redress和徐逸昇合作。我推們 出的『伴你翺翔環保利是』既是明農年曆新年送贈至愛親友的上佳禮物,同時也可以藉支本此持地善慈 團體樂餉。社 」

這款限量版利是封只供香港顧客選購,現已於Discover the Shop網站發售,了解詳情覽請瀏 cathaypacific.com/dutyfree/ homedelivery。
