#ZeroWaste Fashionista: Hong Kong’s BEST Pre-Loved Pop Ups – Where To Shop Second Hand

Our addiction to fast fashion is causing a global environmental crisis. Over 15 million tons of clothes are thrown into landfills each year in the United States alone. Globally the number is far larger (and very hard to track). Most cheap clothing is made from synthetic materials that don’t degrade for hundreds of years. The fashion industry is the fifth most pollution on the planet. Basically, it’s a big fat hot mess. Problem is, we are all addicted to consuming fashion. So, how can we fix this? Buy pre-loved (a nice way to say second-hand) fashion. You get to update your wardrobe and scratch that shopping itch without adding to the problem (and the landfill). Hong Kong is having a pre-loved fashion moment at the minute, with pop ups happening all over the place. No matter your budget or your brand inclination, there’s a pre-loved fashion pop up for you in our roundup below!
