The value of recycling

Some fashion brands collect used textiles for recycling, as a part of their sustainability initiatives. It is common practice to reward recycling costumers with a discount on a new purchase - a practice which may be efficient, but fails to truly engage the costumer in sustainable behaviour, and effectively inspires the purchase of yet another garment. The logic of the practice seems flawed and self contradictory.

We propose an alternative based on this practice - one which might actually lead to awareness about and inclusion into the reality of garment production.
