Zero Waste Fashion Week
4000 tonnes of clothing and textiles end up in Leeds' black bins every year. Zero Waste Fashion week will be a series of events to celebrate the rich textile, fashion and clothing history of Leeds and explore how we can lead the world again but in a more sustainable way.
The week will take place from Friday 17th April to 24th 2020 and will be a series of events at different venues across Leeds that aim to:
- Share practical ways for people in Leeds to manage the impacts of their clothing choices
- Explore reasons why sustainability in fashion is so important
- Celebrate the rich textile heritage of Leeds
- Build a #ZeroWasteFashion movement
We will be hosting a couple of our own events during the week, and are also looking for other people that would be interested in hosting their own events, which we will promote. We have started scheduling events for the week on the dedicated fashion week webpage but are still working to finalise the details and will have more information soon.
Please get in touch if you have any ideas for an event you would like to host as part of the week.
