The project goal was to work in collaboration with Friends of the Earth Hong Kong to determine the best methods for local businesses and consumers to increase sustainable practices in Hong Kong’s fashion industry. We collected information about sustainable company and consumer habits through extensive research, interviews with industry stakeholders, and existing consumer survey data. The project resulted in four core recommendations to address the lack of sustainability in Hong Kong fashion industry. These include developing a catalog of fashion technologies for designers, encouraging Friends of the Earth to host upcycling events for consumers, improving the Higg Index, a company self-evaluation tool on sustainability, and educating consumers on fashion sustainability.
