About Us

Redress is an environmental charity with a mission to prevent and transform textile waste to catalyze a circular economy and reduce fashion's water, chemical, and carbon footprints. Our programs work to change mindsets and practices to stop the creation of textile waste now and in the future, as well as creating systems and partnerships that generate and showcase the value in existing waste.
