WEARCARE

WHAT
A clothing rack with a portable steamer to freshen clothes, so they don’t have to be washed as often, which is better for the environment.

WHY
Frequent washing is bad for your clothes, uses lots of water and releases countless tiny synthetic fibres into rivers and oceans. Airing or steaming clothing lets you wear it again without laundering.

HOW
Extending the life of clothing by nine months would reduce carbon, waste and water footprints by around 30 per cent each.

QUOTE
A garment should last a lifetime; that’s only possible with the right care.
