The textile industry is one of the most polluting and wasteful industries on earth. In the United Kingdom alone, more than 206.456 tonnes of textile waste are produced each year and only the 25% are either reused or recycled.
This webinar supports the launch of North London Waste Authority Textile Waste Campaign “My Wardrobe, My Way” which focuses on sustainable fashion habits as an alternative to fast fashion by making the most of what you already own.
You will learn:
- The current situation of the fashion industry and textile waste in the UK
- Ways that you can be fashionable whilst adopting sustainable habits
- Tips on how to create your own capsule wardrobe as what to consider when selecting pieces
- First-hand experience from our guest speaker Ander Zabala Waste and Recycling Manager at Hackney Council and Zero Waste Champion.
