We raised awareness on Plastic Waste and Fast Fashion
We heard about the history and the achievements of Boomerang Bags from Aileen (Boomerang Bags Inverloch)
We increased the life cycle of unwanted clothing and avoided them ending up in landfill
We raised an amazing $340.07 for Boomerang Bags Inverloch who will create an environmental program for kids on plastic waste
We supported our local community
WHY IS EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT FAST FASHION AT THE MOMENT?
WHY DO WE NEED A FASHION REVOLUTION?
WHAT CAN I DO, YOU ASK? HERE SOME IDEAS:
Find out more about Fast Fashion and talk about it with your family, friends, colleagues, soulmates
Ask #Whomademyclothes and post a snapshot of yourself and the tag of your favourite
garment on social media
Donate to Fashion Revolution to get yourself in the right season holiday spirit 😇
When doing your shopping, think about "Buy less, choose well and make it last"
Consider buying second hand either in an Op-Shop (Vinnies, Salvos) or online (E-Bay, Gumtree), borrow clothes you are likely to wear only once (from family, friends or a hiring place) and
swap your unwanted garments for a stylish new look at a local clothes swap event or amongst a privately hosted swap
Check out these op-shop stylists to find out how you can be stylish without costing the world. Some examples include: Jenna Flood (Ironic Minimalist), Alex van Os (Op Shop to
Runway), Nina Gbor (Eco Styles), Faye de Lanty (Fashion Hound) or Michelle (Opshopstylist)
