    Join us in an online interactive workshop to discover how you can use fashion waste to scale your business!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Waste in fashion is a critical issue.

    According to the National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore generated 205,800 tonnes of textile and leather waste in 2019, out of which only 6% was recycled.

    As part of Fashion Revolution Week 2021, Reapra, a venture builder and investment group, have teamed up with Anisa Johnny, Senior Lecturer in Fashion Marketing at the Raffles College of Higher Education, to host an interactive online workshop where participants can learn about the inefficiencies of the fashion industry and tap into Reapra's expertise in building sustainable businesses.

    Learn from strategic business case studies of companies who have successfully used waste to scale sustainably, and meet other like-minded advocated for fashion sustainability. You will also take part in an 'ideathon' - a mini hackathon where you can hear the latest research in sustainable fashion, collaborate, develop and pitch new ideas to start or scale your fashion business.

    Winners of the ideathon will stand to receive mentorship from Reapra and our partners!

    #ClothesBusters is the theme of Threading Change's Textile Talks Series aimed at demystifying fashion myths, from clothing donations, fashion trends and fashion psychology, to the environmental and social implications of the fashion industry.

    Join us for #AreMyClothesHarmful? The fashion industry has disastrous impacts on the environment and human health and rights. It's the second-largest polluter in the world, causing many negative impacts including water pollution, waste, chemical pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, inhumane and unsafe working conditions, excessive hours, poor wages, child labour, and more. We hope to demystify and shine light on these issues so that we can push for more ethical supply chains and company practices in order to make better choices for our communities and the planet.

    Paying homage to #WhoMadeMyClothes, as it is Fashion Revolution week April 19-25.

    Panellists are:

    Roger Williams

    Aditi Mayer is a sustainable fashion blogger, photojournalist, labour rights activist, and frequent speaker on topics of social and environmental justice. Her work looks at fashion and culture through a lens of intersectionality and decolonization. In 2014, Aditi had her start in the sustainable fashion movement after learning about the Rana Plaza Factory Collapse. Seeing the fashion industry’s disproportionate on people of colour globally, Aditi looked to understand the historical and sociopolitical underpinnings that allow the fashion industry to function in a colonial manner, rooted in exploitation and extraction of both labour and the natural environment. Since then, she has become a leading voice in the sustainability movement, approaching her work from multiple domains: from grassroots organizing in Downtown LA’s garment district to educating folks on the importance of diverse perspectives. She also serves on the council of Intersectional Environmentalist, and will be spending 2022 as a National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow, spending one year documenting the social and environmental impacts of India’s fashion supply chain.

    Acerca deste evento

    Webinar sobre como sermos ativistas através da moda.

    Olhar para a moda como indústria integrante de um sistema capitalista, supremacista branco, patriarcal e heteronormativo, pensar o vestir como comunicação e a roupa como meio, para sermos ativistas muito para lá do consumo.

  • 18/04/2021 10:00 - 20/04/2021 11:00

    This is a FREE event on Zoom. Please RSVP through the Peatix link for a Zoom invite! The event will also be broadcast on Facebook Live.

    It’s no secret that the fashion industry has a waste crisis. As we wag our fingers at fashion brands that grapple with their perfectly good overstock in often destructive ways, we as consumers could also afford to take a closer look at the way we grow tired of perfectly good clothes and inadvertently fuel the creation of more - more clothing and more packaging.

    Why is there so much fashion waste? What can we do to solve this problem? And what really happens to the clothes we discard, or donate?

    With less than 10% of donated clothing actually being circulated through charity shops and 94% of all textile and plastics waste being incinerated and landfilled, perhaps it is time for us to reckon with the privilege that fuels it.

    Join us in this conversation to discuss:

    • what fashion waste looks like in Singapore
    • the role of privilege in fashion waste
    • how brands and consumers can be part of the solution

    The fashion industry contributes to 10% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide and we each play a part with or without realising it. But who can really make a difference to change the industry for the better - the people, the private sector, or the government?

    Join us as we venture beyond the fashion industry to explore this question with our speakers, who grapple with the same sustainability conundrum in other spaces, and learn how every one of us can be catalysts of change through both our personal choices and our voices.

    Through this discussion, we will discover:

    • the interconnection between different sectors and their changemaking strategies
    • how we can be part of the solution as individuals
    • how advocacy can look in Singapore
