Green Ladies Opens
Reduce fashion waste and stay style savvy by shopping used

Hot off the heels of the launch of the fashion waste awareness-raising exhibition Y Waste? by local upcycling heroes Redress, comes more good news for eco-conscious fashionistas in Hong Kong.
Green Ladies, a social enterprise store where you can purchase (or drop off) your high-quality used clothes (and even receive a small return on sales of your former items), have opened a brand new branch on 168 Queen’s Road West in Sai Ying Pun!
Green Ladies enables you to enjoy updating your look and following trends without contributing to the catastrophic environmental effects associated with fast, mainstream fashion. At the moment, Hong Kongers send over 98,500 tonnes (!) of textiles to landfill every year. That’s over 11,000 garments every hour. This is not only disasterous for the environment in terms of the processed material - and the chemicals therein - being dumped into the earth, but ultimately it means all the raw materials, energy and water used during the production of these items are also wasted.
Go check out the carefully vetted and high quality selection available, or why not create some space in your summer wardrobe (and make some money while your at it) by bringing your items to the store?
