Are you watching your waste?

November 23, 2011

Did you just buy that vintage belt you were after, or that classic pair of trousers, or maybe you just bought that pre-loved lamp and coffee table that look great with your new retro feel front room? Or just maybe, you had last night’s take away for breakfast this morning? Well, you are already watching your waste and bang on trend!

To encourage more people to watch their waste, Recycle for Greater Manchester is launching Watch Your Waste Week from 14th to 26th November. The campaign is designed primarily to spark an interest in reducing household waste using fashion; clothes and
furniture as the call to action.

To encourage all the style Fashionistas to save their pennies and reduce their waste, Recycle for Greater Manchester is styling residents and their homes by hosting a number of free events across the region. Events include:

• Sew Good up-cycling workshops
• Love Food Hate Waste cookery class
• Living room displays across Greater Manchester

A night of pure fashion

Recycle for Greater Manchester will also be hosting a celebration event with a fashion show finale on 26th  November at Maxwell Hall, part of Salford University. The celebration event will showcase what has been achieved to date in Greater Manchester to reduce waste and will also be a big thank you to residents for their efforts.

During the event, residents will have the opportunity to chat with local ethical designers for styling tips and browse their collections, chat with furniture organisations to help get their home bang up to date without spending a fortune and of course soak up the period atmosphere of the 1940’s inspired up-cycled fashion show collection. This is a free event to all those living in Greater Manchester.
