WHAM! The REDRESS team and I had the BEST launch of our new comic book Yoyo and the World’s Coolest T-Shirt on Saturday morning! Scroll through the slide-show for some great pics including some of the ways that I personally RE-USE, UP-CYCLE, HAND-DOWN and RE-CYCLE clothes in my family! You can even see me in my very own WHAM! T-shirt which I cunningly made using a paper cut out pinned to one of my old long-sleeved T-shirts! I think my favourite idea has to be the fabulous REDRESS tote-bag which I made using the instructions in the back of our new comic book. It’s SO EASY to make and all you need is an old T-shirt and a sharp pair of scissors!

Make sure your school gets its own FREE copies of Yoyo and the World’s Coolest T-Shirt for the library by writing to Corane Chu at corane@redress.com.hk

Hear me read my new Comic Book this Saturday at 10.30AM!

Cover page, Yoyo and the World’s Coolest T-Shirt

I am hugely proud to announce the release of this funny, educational new comic book, which I was invited to write by REDRESS, a fantastic Hong Kong-based environmental charity!

Yoyo and the World’s Coolest T-shirt aims to teach Hong Kong children aged 8 – 10 years about how they can share, repair and repurpose their old clothes to help save the planet. The comic is bilingual in English and Traditional Chinese and is illustrated by acclaimed Australian cartoonist Kathryn Mann.

The project was funded by the HK Government’s Environment and Conservation Fund and Environmental Campaign Committee, so REDRESS is able to donate FREE hardcover copies of this educational comic to primary schools, kindergartens and other student organisations and charitable organisations across Hong Kong!

If you know a school or organisation that might be interested, please ask them to contact REDRESS here.

Huge thanks to the fabulous team at REDRESS – Corane Chu, Charly Cheung, Lauren Boucher and Gwendoline Venn – it’s been a blast working with you! And to Kathryn Mann for her FANTASTIC illustrations! And of course thanks to the ECF and ECC for funding this extremely worthwhile project.

Make sure to register for the upcoming English language launch event – see my next post :)!
