A Fashion & Climate Leadership workshop where students learn how to organize a 7R’s of Fashion stewardship event (ie clothing swap).
We’re coming to Peel and Halton!
NOTE: Spots are limited. Successful school applicants must demonstrate a commitment to all aspects of the program (workshops and student-led stewardship programming). A previous track record of environmental action is an asset. Subsidies for the $150 fee may be available for schools in economically challenged neighbourhoods.
Too much of that clothing is not reused, repurposed, repaired or recycled. The average North American throws away 36kg of textile waste each year. That’s the equivalent of 55 pairs of jeans in weight! For every 1kg of textiles in landfill, 4kg of CO2 is emitted to our atmosphere, which makes our fashion consumption a climate change issue as well as a waste issue.
