Every year Australia sends 85% of textiles to landfill. "Fast fashion" is fast becoming a big environmental problem.
Born in 2015, www.huntermarkets.com.au connects influencers like Hannah Orval with girls who want to snatch up a fit straight from their wardrobes. Hundreds of influencers have since recycled thousands of items that would otherwise have been thrown away.
The focus is on circular fashion and rescuing items from heading to landfill. Grass roots organisations like Little Litter Project are also making important contributions to this recycling push against fast fashion.
Joining Byron Cooke for this episode : Sarah Kokkinos, Founder of Hunter Markets. Candace Colaco, Founder of Little Litter Project. Hannah Orval, Influencer.
