The 'fast' fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to water and land pollution, which also depends on the exploitation of over 40 million people.
Altr.d Clothing is a social enterprise aiming to reduce local clothing waste and promote more sustainable fashion habits.
This is achieved by organising clothes swap events to collect unwanted items and encourage people to consider secondhand items before new ones.
Unwanted items that are not swapped will be upcycled through screen-printing and hand-painting designs to be sold online or at local events. With sustainability at the forefront of our project, we plan to use non-toxic paint and recyclable packaging.
