Wear Your Waste event at Millstreet Community School – thank you!

A big thank-you to everyone who supported the Wear Your Waste recycled fashion event that took place on Thursday 26th April 2018 in Millstreet Community School.  It really was a very memorable event.  The teachers in the local National Schools who encouraged their pupils to get involved should be commended on their efforts.  The event proved to be a great opportunity to raise the issue of ethical and sustainable fashion, and to encourage us to ask big fashion brands, ‘Who made my clothes?’
