Join CUCCR for this informal session where we will work together to repair, remake, and extend the lifespan of our items!
Every year, millions of people throw away countless items because they don’t know how to fix them. This throwaway lifestyle depletes Earth’s resources and adds to overflowing landfills. One area we can all work on is to repair our wardrobe. Clothing and textiles make up a large portion of our landfill waste and fibers are rarely recycled.
Regardless of whether you are purchasing clothing made from ethical materials or fast fashion, we should do our very best to keep wearing and using our textiles for as long as possible. “Tend to your wardrobe as if it were a garden” is a beautiful principle discussed in the lovely book titled ‘Mending Life: A Handbook for repairing clothes and hearts’.
