Story

“Fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world. We need to change that.”

- Emma Watson

Reduce, reuse, and recycle – This has been the mantra for years. People are shopping and buying more, so the output of clothing is higher. However, the quick fashion industry and overstuffed closets, have all contributed to overflowing landfills. My Children has taken an initiative to collect old clothes, classify them and then recycle or redesign or repurpose.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

It’s great for the planet: It takes about 700 gallons of water to make a tee shirt! Recycled materials use 99% less water. Recycling fabrics reduces greenhouse gases by 50% or more! For every 1 pound of material that gets recycled, up to 4 pounds of carbon dioxide are saved from the atmosphere! It also conserves energy by lowering the need to create new materials.

It benefits those in need: When you donate your clothes, you help a lot of people. Your clothes will begin a new journey and be part of new memories. Far better than being binned and forgotten. Your branded clothes are dream for many less privileged people. Donating those clothes which you have forgotten long back creates opportunity for them to enjoy.

It’s easy & helps declutter your closet: It simply takes a few seconds longer to donate your clothes, than it does to throw them away. Donating clothes you don’t wear anymore will make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for, saving you time and stress. Also, decluttering is very calming. Research even draws a connection between having less stuff and increased happiness!

Creates Jobs: Creating a circular economy with clothing generates some interesting new jobs including designers, biochemical engineers, chemists, and sustainability experts. Then that new material has to be processed and made into new yarns and fabrics, then sold, cut, sewn, inspected, packaged, shipped, and displayed by other employees.

It lowers the cost of consumerism: People have been talking about the idea of living a minimalist lifestyle for some years. The minimalist lifestyle keeps us from engaging in expensive consumerism, or, more crucially, costly waste. We make a personal impact on the wastefulness of the textile business, when we buy recycled clothing, recycle items ourselves, and simply buy less.

WHAT WE DO WITH COLLECTED CLOTHES

After collection of all clothes, our team will screen all clothes and put into different buckets depending on condition, quality & usage. Then we will treat them in 3 different ways –

1. Recycle: With the help of our recycling vendors, we will disinfect, wash and iron selected clothes. We will try to repair all the damages as much as possible. Once processing is done, we will try to distribute those clothes among needy people as much as possible. Depending on the quantity of clothes, we may circulate those clothes in the formal market through our vendors.

2. Redesign: Some clothes may deserve redesigning to give a different, attractive look e.g. transforming jeans into shorts or. With the help of professional designer, we will redesign, rebranded those clothes and conduct a charity sales to raise fund.

3. Repurpose: Some clothes may no longer be used for their original purpose. Our experts will evaluate and convert them to something else to use them differently e.g. making a quilt or pillow from old T-Shirts.
