YWASTE : a sculpture that shows the reality of the textile industry

The textile industry is now the 2nd most polluting industry in the world after oil. Yep. Hard to conceive right? Well the fashion nonprofit Redress in collaboration with Miele found a great way to put this visually. Their public sculpture YWASTE? is made out of the amount of fabric that floods Hong Kong landfill every 2 minutes. If you need a number, that’s 360 kilograms of textile.

A beautiful and intelligent way to showcase the problem.
