Fast fashion harms the environment and threatens health with toxic chemicals. We're committed to safe, sustainable clothing for a greener, healthier world.

Free Education

Free Education

Fashion school costs $$$. We will fund a Charitable Fashion School with revenue from selling sustainable fashion, offering free education to drive industry change.

Fun fact: We are developing the world's first eduventurous game to make the fashion industry more sustainable. Find more about it here.

Why we are doing this?
- Because a truck full of used clothes ends up in landfills each second!

The fashion industry prioritizes cutting costs by making use of cheap and toxic materials. This also reduces the lifespan of the clothes.
Discarding the clothes in this fast fashion era leads to excessive textile waste. Millions of tonnes of clothes are donated to Africa, but 70% ending up in landfills of Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya and other countries.
