Redress*, an environmental NGO aiming to reduce waste in the fashion industry, is joining forces with the German company Miele this November to share the vision for change through a citywide clothing drive, with a mission to re-direct as many of unwanted clothing items away from landfills and back into the fashion industry.
The Get Redressed x Miele Clothing Drive 2017 called for donations of second-hand clothing, shoes and accessories from 6 November to 19 November 2017 which would directly benefit local charities, including Christian Action, Friends of the Earth (Hong Kong), Green Ladies and Green Little of St. James' Settlement, Lizzie Bee, Pathfinders, and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals.
Collected high-quality clothing (mens, womens and childrenswear) and accessories will be sold at the Get Redressed second-hand pop-up shop "On The List", from 22 November to 25 November 2017 situated at the Basement, Printing House, 6 Duddell Street, Central to raise funds for Redress, enabling it to continue its ten-year legacy of cutting waste out of fashion.
