New Idea

Social Purpose

Responsible Consumption & Production

What is the problem you found?

A lot of people are throwing out their clothes away, causing lots of waste that is going to landfill and harming animals and plants.

What is your opportunity?

How might we reduce clothing being wasted or thrown out?

Who is your audience?

Young people such as teenagers who are passionate about saving the environment, as well as older people if they are interested.

What Is Your Solution?

Our solution is to make accessories from recycled clothing and turn it into scrunchies, masks, headbands and lots more. All the accessories are up-cycled - which means they are made from donated clothes from the public. Anyone who donates clothing or other fabric will get a discount on the products.
