London is one of the world 's greatest fashion capitals and 23% of Londoners 's clothes are unworn. This is equivalent 123 million items of clothes that Londoners have bought but are not wearing any more.  At a time which is imperative to take care of our natural resources  and reduce CO2e, having all these items of clothes unworn is pretty unsustainable.  The 23% campaign will hep londoners to put back into use Londoners 's unworn clothes.  Action of that kind could save around 56 million cubit metres of water and enough CO2e to power homes for a whole year.    So if you live in London, look carefully at your unworn wardrobe and take the action:  pass on the clothes you no longer need so someone else can use them. The TRAID team will come to collect from your home or workplace. You can book the free campaign collection online www.traid.org/23collect  or call  020  8733 2595. We will let you know the approximate amounts of  waste, waster and CO2 e saving made through your action.  By passion on these clothes for someone else to use, Londoners can help to advance and champion the United Nations  Sustainable Development Goal Number 12, to ensure sustainable consumption  and production.

TRAID completes the circle by committing the funds raised by giving longer life to clothes to global projects benefiting the people and places making our clothes.
