Stitch It Don’t Ditch It: Public Mending for a Fashion Revolution

April 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

#StitchItDontDitchIt responds to fast fashion with the ‘joyful disruption’ of public mending. If you think fast fashion is polluting the planet and contributing to the climate crisis, and you wish you could do something about it… join us!

12 -1.30 pm, April 20, outside H&M — the second largest textile manufacturer — for a festival of socially distanced mending during Fashion Revolution Week.

All ages, all abilities, all genders welcome. Bring your mending, mask and a folding chair. We will form a line of menders down the middle of the mall.

Not sure why clothes matter in terms of climate crisis? See this explainer from the Climate Council.

Fast fashion needs to slow down for the climate
