Sharing fashion is caring fashion

Fjong
Norway (Oslo)

The fashion industry is well known for its negative impact on the environment. Clothes make up a significant portion of ocean plastic, and their production is responsible for around 20% of industrial wastewater pollution as well as 1.2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to fast fashion, we’re buying cheaper clothes that don’t last, and it’s unsustainable.

Fjong’s solution is to create a country-spanning shared wardrobe of clothes for short-term rental. The company itself offers over 4,000 outfits, and other lenders can sign up to rent out their own neglected clothes. Users simply view the outfits online and then book them for a period of time, up to six months in advance.

Know of a project that’s transforming the fashion sector? Submit it here, and we’ll spread the joy by mapping it on the Atlas.
