Students learn about the negative impact of fashion waste and how to be a 7R’s of Fashion Leader. Have you ever thought about the amount of clothes that are made and consumed every year by the world’s population? Globally, we purchased more than 107 billion items of clothing and 14.5 billion pairs of shoes in 2016. Most of those garments and shoes are not equitably consumed and are wasted in wealthier countries like Canada. In this live one-hour virtual workshop, students will learn how they can make a difference through conscious consumerism. We make this concept easy to remember with the 7R’s of Fashion – reduce [water], reuse, repurpose, repair, resale, rent & recycle.
