What happens to the 340 tonnes of discarded clothes and textiles landfilled in Hong Kong each day?
The answer is mostly, nothing. The Time Wardrobe follows a day in the work of upcycling advocate, Toby Crispy, as she finds ways to save clothing from landfills through redesign initiatives. Tracing the once prosperous textile industry in Hong Kong, we examine remnants of the ‘old Hong Kong’ and meet people who are trying to make Hong Kong a more sustainable place.
