Sustainable fashion: what happens to your donated clothes?

Every day 370 tonnes of clothes are put in Hong Kong’s landfills. Yet 95% of these could be reused, repaired or recycled.

Did you know you can donate clothes to  Redress all year round? Redress works tirelessly to raise awareness and minimise the environmental impact of the fashion industry. The Purpose Business is proud to be supporting them and the #GetRedressed campaign with this infographic, developed in partnership with Eat Creative.

Take a look to discover what happens your clothes after they are donated, and understand how your fashion choices can help you lead a more sustainable life.
