IAMbagsforchange // creative projects to use bags for impact and change
Problem definition :
Worldwide up to 40% of fashion productions no longer reach the consumer, as there are masses of overproduction. Even more terrifying is the fact that upto 90% of these overproduction are burned and only a very little percentage is recycled.
IAM bags for change is a new re-fashion concept that starts from a simple principle : if there is inventory we first use it to create impact and change before making any new items.
A platform is created so that people who have creative project ideas following this concept are welcomed to join this movement.
Small test-projects are already proceeding in 2019 .
# IAMGezoârde is a small project in our village where a personalised collection is sold to help the local boy scouts and the residential care center workers.
# IAMantwerpartist is a project in collaboration with Antwerp organisation Ietstof where young antwerp artists paint on I AM bags, The income goes to the artists who suffer most from covid.
