Our old clothes heading to Africa

At One Army we're trying to understand the fashion problem with a project called Fixing Fashion (launching on April 19th). In this picture Alicia went to a clothing charity in the Netherlands where they gather clothes that are dumped into those “clothing donation boxes”.

It's a lot! And everything is sold to Africa. Compressed into these blocks and shipped to the other side of the planet. Each block is around 55KG, moved with a forklift in Netherlands and carried by woman on the head in Ghana. More on this topic soon.
