HONG KONG – As Hong Kong begins to take a more pro-active approach to textile waste, Redress – an NGO that promotes environmental sustainability in fashion – reports that over eighty companies from across the city took part in its ‘Get Redressed Month’.

This initiative tackles the issue of textile waste, and follows on from the opening of the first spinning mill in Hong Kong for several decades in September, which will produce recycled yarn derived from the region’s unwanted clothing.

“Across the world, every second the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned” Dr. Christina Dean – founder and chair of Redress – noted. “Here in Hong Kong we are disposing around two hundred and eighty garments per minute into Hong Kong’s overflowing landfills every single day.”
