New Delhi: Actor Alia Bhatt comes up with ‘Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe’ (MiSu), a wardrobe-sharing initiative, wherein garments and shoes from actor and fellow eco-warriors will be available for purchase online at reasonable rates. Urging people to adopt sustainable fashion and consider recycling and upcycling of garments, Alia Bhatt shared a short video on her social media and said, “Cleaner and greener future for all. Let’s all pledge for #FashionForACause.”
Sharing some facts, the actor further added, “Recycled or upcycled textiles make a huge difference to the environment. If a garment is worn for 9 months more, the impact of manufacturing new clothes as replacements would be dramatically reduced. As a result, related carbon dioxide emissions would decrease by more than one-fourth, water use by one-third and waste by more than one-fifth.”

#BeatPasticPollution by switching to steel or glass bottles today! Plastic bottles take 450 years or more to decompose, harming us and our environment. I’m now one step closer towards purging plastic from my life. Hope you guys will make the switch too! #LetsCoexist
