About the event

Brits throw away over 3kg of textile waste each year, making the UK the fourth-largest textile waste producer in Europe. Not only do these garments add to the growing landfill mounds across the country, but they also exacerbate the ongoing climate crisis. Combatting this issue is no mean feat, but the initiatives covered in this session are supporting the fight against fast fashion.
