‘Get Redressed’ RBS

The ‘Get Redressed’ RBS workshop created a lively educational setting for RBS’ ‘Focused Women HK’, a network that supports the development and career advancement of RBS employees, to get engaged with the broader environmental issues contained in their wardrobes. The workshop introduced several of the fashion industry’s negative environmental impacts – carbon emissions, water pollution, chemical use and textile waste – providing a solid base from which to explore the more practical and creative solutions to dressing sustainably: from managing our wardrobes; shopping for local sustainable designers, vintage and secondhand clothing; washing clothing more sustainably; to supporting local clothing charities with via donations of unwanted clothing.

Participants were provided with Redress’ inaugural sustainable shopping guide to Hong Kong, entitled ‘Redressing Hong Kong Wardrobes’.
