      生活關於選擇。而我們不時會遇到那些讓人猶豫不決、無法抉擇的時刻,大至關乎終身大事、小至關乎棄掉舊衣物的與否。面對這些交叉點上,其實或許只需要那放手一搏的勇氣。人們常說斷、捨、離,但捨棄從來知易行難,回到衣物層面的話,當你不確定物件的價值,或對它有所質疑的時候,不妨就選擇捐贈吧。

      衣物是新或舊,同樣存有價值。可持續時尚的需求不斷增長,二手衣服、交換衣櫥變得流行,人們願意捐贈自己不要的衣服,而非直接丟掉,又甚至願意在別人捐贈的衣櫥裡尋找好物。近日我看關於倫敦時裝周的報導,瞥見一宗有關時尚Swap Shop(以物易物店)的新聞,年輕設計師Patrick McDowell以Swap Shop形式,探討著如何在享受時尚同時,減低碳足印和對環境的影響。他展示了一名為“curated, evolving”(精心策劃,不斷發展)的系列,其系列全由捐贈的物品製成,還原甚至強化那些了舊衣物的價值。

      Making history! For the first time ever a fashion designer (@patrick__mcdowell ) creates his new collection from items collected for a clothing swap, up-cycled and sparkled with @swarovski crystals only to be given away to continue the journey of the garment + a clothing swap ( @globalfashionexchange + @swaprebellion ) lives inside one of the most important fashion weeks in the world where we take our first steps with block chain swapping (@the_swapchain) inside @londonfashionweek with @britishfashioncouncil | The fashion industry is changing and we have to innovate and can create ‘new’ with what we have already in existence.

      至於Swap Shop活動另一發起人,來自可持續發展諮詢公司Global Fashion Exchange的創辨人Patrick Duffy表示,每年業界製造的服裝達1,500億件,單在英國,運往垃圾堆填區的數量有30萬噸,而數字每年都在增長。舊衣物一直環境帶來影響,要解決問題,除了要令人們謹慎消費以外,更要強調舊衣物仍有的價值--捐贈衣物便是當今的出路。

      在本港,除了那些耳熟能詳的社福機構,仍有不少透過回收衣物、售賣捐贈的二手服飾的平台和機構,如環保時裝店Hula、以寄賣模式營運的環保社企Green Ladies和共享衣櫥平台Wardrobista等,一直致力維持舊衣物的價值,鼓勵人們捐贈舊衣物,同時希望打破人們以往「穿舊衣是負面」的傳統思想。

      下次,倘若你還在煩惱著是否該棄掉舊衣物的時候,不如謹記著「When in doubt, donate」的真理。你不要的衣服,其實有一個更好的人在等著「它」。
