Repairing the clothes your already own enables you to express creativity and individuality whilst reducing your impact on the environment! Mending clothes is a way to start addressing the 6,000 kilograms of used but still wearable clothing going into Australian landfill every 10 minutes. By holding on to your clothes for at least 9 months longer reduces the water, waste and carbon footprint by up to 30%.
We need to buy less, buy better and keep asking questions about the realities behind what we’re purchasing. We need to love the clothes we already own more & work harder to make them last. Mending is a great life skill which can save you money, save your clothes and reduce your impact on the environment! If you would like to learn how to mend your own clothes please visit my workshops page for the latest session.
