Did you know that 4000 tonnes of clothing and textiles end up in Leeds' black bins every year? There are so many better options that are much kinder for our planet and your pocket!

We’ve marked all the ways to recycle, reuse, repair and upcycle your clothes in an easily searchable map on our dedicated Zero Waste Fashion site.

Here are some things to consider when thinking about your wardrobe and ways to avoid waste and be more sustainable.

Find out more about our Zero Waste Fashion week - a series of events in April 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. The week will be interspersed with sewing workshops, clothes exchanges, talks and more.
