Apparently, we bought 60% more clothes than in the year 2000, using them for half as long. But it still takes approximately 2,700 litres of water to make one single cotton t-shirt. Vividye says “We give clothes a second chance, and a third, a fourth, a fifth...”. The company received the sustainability price from Textilia in 2020 for its reuse and recycling initiatives.
