If you are looking to educate children, teenagers, staff or even just yourself, we think the below is a good place to start:
Redress is a pioneering Hong Kong based environmental charity with a mission to prevent and transform textile waste to catalyse a circular economy and reduce fashion’s water, chemical and carbon footprints. Our programmes with designers, educators, consumers, brands and industry bodies work to change mindsets and practices to stop the creation of textile waste now and in the future, as well as creating systems and partnerships that generate and showcase value in existing waste.
Redress have created a very informative website on the circular economy in Hong Kong.
This bi-lingual educational toolkit is funded by the Environment and Conservation Fund and the Environmental Campaign Committee. It was designed in consultation with teachers and curriculum advisors from the English Schools Foundation, the Education Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and our wider network of Hong Kong schools, who provided invaluable guidance, support and feedback.
Our protagonist, Eric Swinton of V Cycle is passionate about educating today’s youth and everyone for that matter, about the damaging effects of single use plastic and the ways we can stem the waste. He is often contacted to guest speak at schools and educational establishments to share his knowledge. If this is something you would like to contact him about, please email: [email protected]
