Eco-con­scious Cloth­ing

Expat Living (Hong Kong) - - News -

En­vi­ron­men­tal NGO Re­dress is lead­ing the way when it comes to ad­dress­ing waste in the fash­ion in­dus­try. A re­cent part­ner­ship with Miele, the Get Re­dressed x Miele Cloth­ing Drive 2017, took place over two weeks with 4.4 tonnes of sec­ond-hand cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories col­lected at mul­ti­ple points across the city. Re­dress re­dis­tributed the col­lected items to eight lo­cal char­i­ties as part of its mis­sion to save more cloth­ing from land­fills. The ini­tia­tive proved that, with care, all cloth­ing can be re­cy­cled. re­dress.com.hk
