Visual solutions for environmental change
Eden is a platform which aims to raise awareness about sustainability, mainly through fashion and design. Eden means paradise or a perfect world, which we obviously don’t have. But hopefully, by changing our lifestyles and how we treat our environment, we can get a bit closer to a recovering world. Eden tackles FAST FASHION. Fast fashion can be defined as cheap, trendy clothing, that is not made with the best production process. Fast fashion affects human health, human rights, and our environment.
2.5 billion pounds
of waste is produced by the Fashion Industry each year, accounting for
total waste produced in the world.
tons of pollution are produced by the Chinese textile industry each year.
A single mill can use up to
of water for each piece of fabric it dyes; the dyeing process also pollutes the surrounding water.
Eden is about finding alternative solutions for the fast fashion industry. The founder of Eden, Alysha, has made a 6 piece fashion collection with environmental sustainability patterns printed with eco-friendly dyes on biodegradable materials. The collection will be shown in the May 2020 Chinese International School Virtuosity Hong Kong fashion show. Eden is also a website raising awareness about sustainable lifestyles. On the website, there are articles, podcasts, reviews, and stories written by students that talk about environmental sustainability. Eco-friendly products made by Alysha and other youths in Hong Kong will also be available for purchase.
