Get Redressed Month 2022 – Textile Recycling Campaign

Experts say the fashion industry is responsible for up to 10% of carbon emissions, a good reason to rethink the way we consume clothing – and dispose of it. Instead of tossing your unwanted clothes in the bin, why not give them a second life? Swire Properties is once again partnering with Redress to collect your pre-loved clothes for reuse, resale, and recycling. Clothes collection starts from 3-21 October, check the link below for collection box locations at Taikoo Place and more details.

Swire Properties x Eslite Bookstore: Noodles For Love

Now here’s a win-win proposition: buy some tasty snacks and help a charity too! Knife-shaved noodles, sweet potato thin noodles and those hard-to-stop munching fish crips are in the snack bag, which you can order online for just $50. For every packet sold, Swire Properties will donate a packet to the community. Even better: To mark their 50th anniversary, Swire will toss in a free pair of chopsticks with each purchase.

Matched donations will be shared with those in need via Hong Kong Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and People's Food Bank of St. James' Settlement.


Online pre-order period: Now until 5 October
Redemption period: 14-23 October
Redemption location: Eslite Spectrum, Shop 74, G/F Cityplaza
