Dinki Human in partnership with TRAID
We are thrilled to be working in partnership with TRAID in our new 'Community' Collection. 10% of proceeds from every style in the 'EARTH LEOPARD' print will be donated to this fantastic charity.
"TRAID is a charity working to stop clothes from being thrown away. We turn clothes waste into funds and resources to reduce the environmental and social impacts of our clothes."
All Dinki Human clothing is designed and manufactured in a way that is mindful of the impact it has on our planet. We actively encourage our customers to pass down clothing when it's finished with, or to donate to charity. TRAID offers free-collection services to Londoners (and some surrounding areas) and has lots of drop-off points around the UK, they process over 11000 garments a week to reuse and resell. That equates to over 3000 tonnes of clothes being saved from incineration and ending up in landfill.
TRAID has a "circular and sustainable approach to the problems of clothes waste" and works to reduce clothing disposal and unsustainable consumption habits by;
- Increasing clothes reuse across the UK reducing waste, carbon emissions and consumption
- Funding international development projects to improve conditions and working practices in the textile industry
- Educating people of all ages about the impacts of textiles on the environment and people’s lives, and how we can make more sustainable choices
