Don’t feel like buying one-time Traditional Wears? Rent them out


Do you know how much water it takes to make that cotton t-shirt you are planning to buy this Dashain? To be precise, 2700 liters that is about three years worth of drinking water for one t-shirt!  That a heck lot of water. Also the 80% of discarded clothes end up in landfills. You can imagine the problems we are creating for ourselves. So rather than buying clothes that are going to be used at most once or twice why not we rent them out and have a responsible Dashain. 
Here are two social enterprises in Nepal that provide clothes on rent which will ensure you have an elegant one time traditional wear!!
