To celebrate our partnership with Love Your Clothes, we’re bringing you 2 weeks jam-packed with the best #FashionFixes. PLUS we’re giving you a chance to win a signed copy of Girl with a Sewing Machine from the Great British Sewing Bee’s Jenniffer Taylor.
What is #FashionFixes?
Every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK and over 5% of the UK’s total annual carbon and water footprints result from clothing consumption. If clothes stayed in active use 9 months longer than they do now, this would reduce their carbon, water and waste footprints by 20-30%.
Therefore, we want to help educate just how easy it is to fix and upcycle your own clothes to help reduce landfill – and save you money! Keep a close eye on our Facebook page f0r Love Your Clothes’ top tips such as fixing hems, mending holes and even how to make a laptop case from a jumper!
How do I enter #FashionFixes?
We want to see your #FashionFixes! Got a top tip on how to salvage your favourite garments from the bin? Know a quick and easy way to upgrade that dress bound for landfill? Submit it on social media using #FashionFixes and Jennifer’s favourite will win a personalised, signed copy of her book!
Entries should be in a photo or video format and must be submitted before midnight on the 12th of November
Why not list your clothes on Preloved?
If you’ve simply fallen out of love with your clothes, and there’s no #FashionFixes for you, why not list your clothes on Preloved? You can help contribute to reducing landfill, make some money and make some space for some new sustainable clothes.
