Besides the problem of disposable plastic waste when traveling, it turns out there are also other waste problems that are close to life. Pile of clothes that are not used. New clothes without realizing that many clothes are not used which then becomes waste clothing waste.

 

There were dozens of participants who took part in the #TukaBaju event in a long line. #TukarBaju activity can be an alternative for those who actively follow current fashion trends without having to consume new things.

 

Through the #TukarBaju activity, people can bring used clothes that are suitable for use which will then be exchanged for clothes belonging to someone else. Before being exchanged, the clothes taken will be curated for eligibility first.

 

After registering and filling in support on social media for the Recycle Movement more, Waste less, two unused clothes brought by Sishi, one of the participants who appeared to be queued was curated first.

 

Categories of clothes that can be exchanged such as shirts, blouses, outerwear, and jackets. Bottoms of jeans, skirts, shorts, trousers. As for the canal, such as dresses and jumpsuit.

 

Clothes that are accepted are only adult clothes of any size, and all genders. In this activity do not accept children's clothes, shirts, swimsuits, nightgowns, underwear, leggings, and sportswear. Each participant only carries a maximum of five clothes.

 

Participants who pass the curation, it means that the clothes that are brought are still in good condition will get one bottle cap for one shirt. After getting the bottle cap, the new clothes can be selected to return to the cashier and fold and put the clothes themselves into shopping bags that have been brought from home.

 

"If I don't want to replace it with a new one. I just want to bring my old clothes that are still good and fill my closet. If I replace it with a new one, it will not diminish the contents of my wardrobe, "said Andim, one of the participants who did not want to exchange his clothes.

 

After exchanging unused clothing, participants can take part in a workshop on “Fashion and Sustainable Traveling” held by Bank DBS Indonesia with Zero Waste Indonesia in the first session, and a workshop on how to make travel kits from recycled materials such as t-shirts in the second session with the Weekend Workshop (WEWO ).

 

"Zero waste life does not stop at reducing disposable plastic waste. Without us knowing, the clothes that we wear every day can also be a dangerous source of waste for our beloved earth, "said Public Relations and Project Manager #TukarBaju Amanda Zahra Marsono at DBS Tower, recently.

 

Amanda said, the fashion industry is one of the most polluted industries in the world. Therefore, we initiated #TukarBaju, a campaign to create awareness for the community and as a solution for fashion waste and textile waste in Indonesia.

 

To make a cotton shirt, according to him, requires 2,700 liters of water equivalent to the amount of human drinking water for three years. "This cotton shirt is made of cotton, cotton plants absorb water so that it can then be harvested and processed into clothing. The water absorbed by cotton plants is equivalent to our drinking water for 3 years, "he explained
