World 82

In World 82, during the industrial revolution in the 20th century, many factories discharged waste water and garbage, which seriously polluted the earth’s environment. Clothing is one of the biggest polluters. In order to solve the problem, in 2021, governments and environmental protection organization “IUCN” are ready to take action in global production.

The process of making and disassembling garments will become a technology that every citizen must learn. Every single garment need to be dismantled and classify according to different materials by owners before throwing. Finally, the professional recycling factory will fix the problem.

What if …

citizens need to classify different types of clothes before throwing them away?

Issue targeted:

globalised pollution


waste pollution
