This week’s featured activity is another from our new Reduce, Reuse, Recycle category. ‘Run a Trashion Show’ is all about reusing unwanted clothing, textiles and other items. About 290 million tonnes of waste are produced in the UK each year, of which around 22.9 million is domestic. Around 50% of our domestic waste ends up in landfill.
Running a Trashion Show will help your students look at the things they normally throw away and see what can be reused or recycled to reduce this waste. It will also help your students stretch their creative talents as they create new, exciting clothing out of unwanted items.
