Sustainable Fashion Giveaway

Sustainable Fashion Giveaway

Mon 15 Mar 2021 00:00 - Mon 22 Mar 2021 23:59

It's Women's History Month! Did you know approximately 80% of garment workers are women? Many of these women are in factories across South Asia and India, earning around $97 per month, to make cheap and 'fast fashion' that's exported to developed nations (source: Good On You). 

We're collaborating with the Sustainability Committee on their Let's Talk Trash campaign, to raise awareness of the impact of fast fashion. To help you make your wardrobe more sustainable, we're running a giveaway including the following: 

  • One sewing machine
  • Ten embroidery upcycling kits - sourced from a carbon positive, independent business
  • Ten copies of the book How to Break Up with Fast Fashion

To enter, you'll need to email thegreenteam@uwe.ac.uk telling us about something you'd like to upcycle and why by Monday 22nd March at 23:59. Winners will be drawn at random.
