IMPACT UPDATE

We are a young start-up with big ambition. URBAG® is a new initiative that seeks to transform how the dry cleaning industry operates. It may take some time for dry cleaners to jump on board, but we’re confident they will.

 

We collect data and will measure and report our impact as our journey continues.

 

We are focusing on the following outcomes:

- How many plastic bottles we have rescued from landfill and up-cycled: 7,137 bottles so far!

- How many meters of plastic film from dry cleaners URBAG® has helped eliminate.

To celebrate our launch, we've collected our favourite content to show the power of impact around the world.

Themes:

- Documentary/Let's talk about.... (Ted talks): lessons in waste management by waste expert

- Action (on the ground): fabric from plastic, plastic ban, how to get plastic free....the heroes getting down to business

- Historical drama: dive deep into the pipes of the past

- Comedy: laugh....

- Kids and family: a step stool  to the world of plastic
