  • Hello

  • A few years ago,

  • I bought this dress

  • for fifteen dollars.

  • Bargain! (Laughter)

  • I was going out to meet up with some friends.

  • I thought, my friends, they know all my other dresses.

  • I'm gonna need something new.

  • And naturally, I went and picked up something new.

  • Before I continue,

  • I’d like to ask you all to consider what you're wearing today.

  • Where it’s from,

  • and if you remember what was on the tag.

  • Because little did I know,

  • that there were seven sneaky facts  about the dress that I just bought.

  • This dress is made of cotton and polyester.

  • To grow enough cotton to create this dress,

  • you need 10,000 liters of water.

  • That’s a small swimming pool.

  • To bleach and dye this dress,

  • toxins are run off into Chinese ecosystems, killing wildlife.

  • The design process of this dress created waste.

  • This waste is calledoff-cuts”.

  • And usually it’s traded as rubbish and sent straight to land field.

  • This dress was made in China, in a sweatshop.

  • It was most likely made by someone, who works 16 hours a day

  • with less than minimum pay.

  • Last year, there was a factory collapse in Bangladesh,

  • which killed a thousand people

  • because the health and safety standards

  • weren't up to scratch.

  • The distribution of this dress, the carbon footprint, I should say,

  • is huge.

  • Often a dress will start in Europe,

  • it will then source material from India, will then flight to China

  • to be manufactured,

  • well then often come back to Europe

  • to have hand-made or more finer details added to it.

  • And then, it's shipped around the world for retail.

  • Collectively,

  • Australians purchase one billion items of clothing per year.

  • There is 22 million of us,

  • which makes it nearly an item per week.

  • Do we really need that many clothes?

  • Did I need to buy this particular dress?

  • The company I bought this dress from doesn't have a recycling scheme.

  • Unfortunately, 5 % of our land field

  • is made up of an unwanted clothing and textiles.

  • My name is Edda.

  • I am the director of Undress Runways,

  • a sustainable fashion show here in Brisbane,

  • and now Melbourne.

  • I discovered sustainable fashion four years ago

  • when I saw our local designers were doing great things

  • with very little support.

  • We curate sustainable daywear, evening wear, lingerie, and swimwear

  • from around the world.

  • We bring these clothes together

  • to one location

  • on one night

  • once a year

  • Think organic fibers,

  • garments dyed with turmeric and red wine,

  • zero-waste collections,

  • ethically produced garments,

  • bamboo underwear

  • and much more.

  • At Undress Brisbane,

  • we started off

  • by taking it off.

  • And we began to think more sustainably

  • about the way

  • we create our clothes

  • and shop.

  • If you don’t know where it was made,

  • where it came from, or where it will end up,

  • take it off.

  • What I'm wearing now

  • is what we call "sustainable fashion".

  • It is made from bamboo,

  • which only requires rain water to grow.

  • It is treated with a low water-dying process.

  • and the waste water is recycled to preserve our ecosystems.

  • It is made of off-cuts.

  • These three sections are actually off-cuts from another collection.

  • And the off-cuts of the off-cuts

  • are then used in the rest of the collection.

  • It is made in Australia.

  • in a place that has healthy working conditions

  • and with fair pay.

  • It came from Melbourne.

  • They're off-cuts from a designer in Melbourne

  • and it was made here in Brisbane.

  • So the carbon footprint was much lower.

  • The use phase:

  • I always wash this on cold

  • and it use non-toxic laundry detergent

  • to conserve water and the environment.

  • Actually, I borrowed this dress from a friend.

  • So, I will be returning it to her later today.

  • Borrowing clothes is actually a very sustainable way to pick your next outfit.

  • I'm passionate about changing the fashion industry,

  • about providing sustainable clothing options,

  • and supporting designers who are doing the right thing.

  • Everything you are wearing today

  • has a story

  • with contributors.

  • And change comes from people like you,

  • the everyday consumers of clothing.

  • And together,

  • we can change the fashion industry.

  • Sustainable fashion is like turning the lights off when you leave your room.

  • It's like turning the tap off when youre brushing your teeth.

  • And it’s like using chemist bags when you go shopping.

  • It is an easy choice we can all make.

  • Next time you go shopping

  • have a look at the tag.

  • And think about where this piece of clothing came from.

  • My Australian dream

  • is to create a world where we, the consumers of fashion,

  • use our dollar

  • to vote for a sustainable fashion industry.

  • An industry where we treat our fellow human beings

  • as worthy individuals

  • and take care of our Earth

  • because we've only got one.

  • So remember,

  • youve always got the option

  • to take it off.

  • [Applause]
