Raye Padit, Connected Threads Asia

For this week’s HOSES feature, we are excited to share Raye’s story with Connected Threads Asia!

What does Connected Threads Asia do?
We advance and promote the sustainable fashion industry in Singapore and beyond.

What is one exciting project that you are working on right now?
Swapaholic! It is a clothing and accessory swap that helps declutter and refresh your closet, without hurting your wallet and our planet!

Tell us one thing you’ve read/watched/event you’ve attended lately. 
A Plastic Ocean documentary that was organized by Gone Adventuring. The documentary was empowering in pushing us to do more. At the same time, it was worrying because it showed that we need to act fast to stop further damage to our planet. 

Who/ what inspires you?
"We Do Not Inherit the Earth from Our Ancestors; We Borrow It from Our Children"- Cheif Seattle

Your hopes for Singapore’s environmental future?
I hope that we can become more responsible with our consumption.
