This activity 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.
But we do not just want talk, we want action! Show off your creations by running a school ‘Trashion Show’ to help raise awareness of reuse and recycling.
