Together, We Renew the Unnew
The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world just after the oil industry. The production of uniforms for HK students each year emitted CO2 equivalent to a car travelling 1,200 times around the Earth and wasted 3 years of drinking water for all people in Hong Kong.
“UNI” stands for Uniform and Unique. The program helps repurpose old uniform to unique souvenirs. The schools joining the program will first collect the old uniforms and let other parents take them. For the uniforms that are of poor quality or are not taken by the parents will be upcycled and repurposed as school souvenirs or to be used in the upcycling workshop. We promote inclusive economy by hiring housewives and elderly to assist in the garment work and upcycling workshops.
