I have just written how it is hard to recycle clothes in Japan. Then I found this lovely idea today, WWF Japan's project. "PANDA BLACK". While we have access to many eco-friendly goods such as cars, home applications and houses, "eco-friendly clothes" have yet to become commonplace. Every year lots of clothes are bought and thrown out, with Japan being a country with one of the lowest recycling rates of clothes in the world. "PANDA BLACK" is a project that promotes the reuse of old clothes. The project aims to reduce the burden on the environment by extending the lifespan of your unwanted clothes.Wearing them again or passing them on to others after dying them black. Clothes are dyed black using a traditional techniquw which has been preserved through the years in Kyoto.
We can see the details of this project in "TOKYO DESIGNERS WEEK 2013" which is the event I plan to go.
