About the event
The fast fashion industry creates 100 billion new items of clothing each year, that's 14 for each human on the planet. But the average lifetime of a piece of clothing is only 2.2 years, and three in five items of clothing will be discarded within one year. How can we save these valuable materials and bring them back into circulation? How can we re-think fashion business to be sustainable and community focused?
Join us for an exciting and inspiring conversation with Sakina and Dan O'Neill as we talk setting up slow, circular fashion brand RE-RUNN, right here in Merton.
