Despite the ongoing drama surrounding not only the impact of coronavirus on the fashion and creative industries, but also the general malaise of the industry as a whole, there are some bright spots to celebrate.
Anje World is an online marketplace for swapping and selling preloved and vintage clothing plus new eco-friendly products like scrunchies made from recycled clothes. The marketplace is also a non-profit.
“Unlike other online marketplaces, we earn zero profit. We started this website to encourage and raise awareness of sustainable fashion. As you know, the fast fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world,” explains Min Hui from Anje World.
As we all know there is already too much stuff, too many clothes, bags and shoes already in our environment. This Singapore-based concept makes it easy for you to shop more consciously and ethically.
“Anje World’s mission is always about bringing hope and love to people. Not just fostering strong bonds, but also encouraging one another to be sustainable for our earth’s good,” says Min Hui.
The site offers a range of clothing and fashion items, from brand new Timberland boots still in the box for $230, to a Gucci Tote Bag for $500, or a cute fashion romper for only $8. There are items for women, men and children. The Anje World platform allows anyone to join up – for free – and to share their items.
“We hope with the launch of Anje World, we can build a community of eco-warriors. We strongly believe that everyone has a part to play,” says Min Hui.
