Every day Hong Kong sends, 343 tonnes of textiles to our city's landfills, with valuable resources going to waste – almost 99% of textiles are recyclable! It's time not only for the fashion industry but also us, as a socially responsible company - and you as individuals to make a difference.
With the support of our charitable partner, Redress, a pioneering Hong Kong charity working to reduce textile waste in the fashion industry, we will help to extend the lifespan of your unwanted garments.
Bring the items you no longer wear to two of the Jeeves boutiques - The Bank of East Asia Building and Aberdeen, to help us work towards a zero-waste-to-landfill status and contribute to a reduced carbon footprint.
- Where are the recycling drop off points?
Two drop off boxes are available at two locations:
The Bank of East Asia Building
Shop 4B, Lobby Floor, The Bank of East Asia Building,
10 Des Voeux Road Central, Central
17/F, Shing Dao Building,
232 Aerdeen Main Road, Aberdeen
- How does it work and what happens to the clothes?
Simply drop your unwanted clothing into our recycling boxes. Clothing can be any type and in any condition. However, please note that we can only accept shoes in very good condition for reuse.
Redress carefully screens every item they receive, then sorts them into the following solution streams to maximise their value and minimise environmental impact:
*Clothes in near pristine condition are sold at Redress' pop up sales to raise funds for Redress’ charitable work to cut waste out of fashion
*Redress has a wide charitable partner network in Hong Kong. The bulk of clothing donations are delivered directly to these charities – all pre-sorted according to their exact beneficiary requirements
*Those items that are least favourable for reuse such as heavily stained, ripped or very poor quality items are sent to Redress’ new recycling partners who turn old clothes into new yarns
*A small percentage of the donations unfortunately still need to go into landfill as they do not qualify for recycling. Redress is continuously working to minimize the amount and is working on providing new channels for these items
Through the DIY workshops, consumers understand the importance of recycling and reducing the negative impact on the environment.
