Event description
Fashion is reportedly a big global polluter. It's time to make radical changes in our clothing manufacturing and buying habits.

About this event

in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland

Fashion is allegedly one of the world’s biggest polluters. Even worse - 300,000 tonnes of used clothes are burned or buried in landfill annually, much of this unworn, as manufacturers dispose of un-sold stock.

The UK is one of the worst offenders when it comes to buying disposable clothes, with the average person buying more clothes per capita than any country in Europe.

Join the panel who will help fast fashionistas understand why it’s now time to make radical changes in our clothing manufacturing and buying habits.
