March 18th marks Global Recycling Day, organised and supported by the Global Recycling Foundation. This day urges us to look at what we throw away as an opportunity and the positive impact that recycling can bring to building an environmentally stable planet.
The apparel industry has potential to reduce the amount of environmental damage - repurposing fabrics and investing in sustainably produced clothing can significantly reduce the amount of textile waste entering landfills.
Here’s how you can make a difference:
- Invest in sustainably produced clothing that will last longer. At Kualesa, we're empowering you to make the eco-friendly choice by purchasing high-quality clothing items made with bamboo. Start replacing your wardrobe with Kualesa today!
- Recycle - Instead of throwing away unwanted clothing items, simply drop them off at designated recycling centres and/or organisations such as Kloth Cares, UrbanR Recycle+ or iCycle. You can even drop them off at fast fashion chain stores such as H&M and Monki and enjoy discount vouchers in return.
- Swap & Share! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Rather than throwing unwanted items in the trash, consider organising a clothing exchange with your family or friends. You might end up leaving with some fresh items for your own wardrobe without spending a dime or sending anything to landfills!
