Today marks the one year anniversary of TRAID’s 23% campaign and Londoners have passed on one million garments. That’s a water saving of 412,800,000 litres and 2,451 tonnes of carbon. An incredible achievement.
In addition to these powerful environmental benefits, passing on clothes to TRAID also enables us to fund global projects supporting more sustainable production in the fashion industry.
In this era of climate emergency, and with the fashion industry responsible for at least 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon emissions annually, we must take action to reduce the impact of our clothes.
