“How can we save our planet, and remake a future where humanity and nature can both thrive?”
THE REMAKEHUB STORY:
Can trash be more than just trash?
Armed with the purpose of solving the problem of limitless waste, REmakeHub is a young social enterprise that transforms trash, that would otherwise end up in landfills, into sustainable materials for lifestyle products.
Did you know?
The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world. It is responsible for 20% of all waste water production and 10% of all carbon emissions.
Here’s how you can do your part:
Thinking of buying something new? Always go for quality over quantity. Invest in items that are made to last a long time. Support sustainable fashion brands.
Go for items that can be worn for many different occasions, and this will bring down your total cost per wear. Maintain your clothes well and consider repairing them so that they last longer.
Instead of buying, ever considered renting? You can still have variety in your wardrobe with rentals, pre-loved items and swap parties.
As a consumer, you have power in your purchasing decisions. Make the conscious choice and go for products made from recycled or upcycled materials.
The longer you keep your clothes in use, the bigger a part you play towards a more sustainable future! So, how long can you “wear” a T-shirt for? Try your hand (or to be more accurate, eyes!) at our new AR game in collaboration with the UN Environment Programme, and learn how you can play a part in contributing to a better world.
