Looking for Halloween costumes for the kids? You’re in luck, because luxury children’s clothing reseller, Retykle, is hosting its annual Halloween costume swap campaign! From now until 31 October 2021, parents can bring their kids’ outgrown costumes to swap or pay just HK$50 to buy something ‘new’ (if they don’t have any costumes to swap).
Did you know? In 2019, an estimated 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste was generated from throwaway Halloween costumes in the UK alone, which is the equivalent of 83 million plastic bottles. Further, of 324 separate textile items, the most common plastic polymer found was polyester (which accounted for 69% of all materials) while cotton made up only 10%.
With their Halloween costume swap, Retykle is working hard to keep kids’ Halloween costumes in circulation and out of landfills. Why not let go of last year’s costumes and swap them for something different – at no extra cost! Princess, pirate or chef – Retykle will probably have what you’re looking for.
Retykle, 8/F, 44 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Sing Teck Building, Wong Chuk Hang, open Mon to Fri from 9:30am-6pm
Note: Costumes with seller bags will also be accepted until 15 October 2021. Sellers can include them with their next seller pick-up or drop-off and they will be able to use their swap token.
