In a 2017 survey by YouGov, 29% of Filipinos throw away their clothes after using them just once. In an information campaign conducted by Greenmatch, fast fashion has become the second largest polluter in the world, with 150 billion pieces of clothing ending up in landfills.
Quarkus believes that companies must have the social responsibility of protecting the environment in their conduct of business. In its own efforts to reduce waste, Quarkus is introducing a new line of products called Quarkus Recreate.
Quarkus Recreate will be a line of limited edition bags and accessories, designed and crafted from high quality used materials gathered from old clothes, curtains, bags, and upholstery.
By reusing materials, we are not only helping in lessening the carbon footprint, but we are also reallocating funds to create more livelihood to artisans.
