Join the #sewingrevolution and #Loveyourclothes
I am a Love Your Clothes Super Crafter!
Love Your Clothes aims to reduce the environmental impact of clothing by raising awareness of the value of clothes. It encourages consumers to think about the way they buy, use and dispose of their clothing. Every year an estimated £140 million worth (around 350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK. Love Your Clothes provides practical tips, hints and knowledge to influence and inspire people to take action and start loving their clothes! Find out more at www.loveyourclothes.org.uk<http://www.loveyourclothes.org.uk>
The Super Crafter network connects clothing experts, textile upcyclers, tailors and skilled crafting professionals who are champions of the Love Your Clothes campaign because of their shared passion for sustainable fashion, crafting, caring and repairing clothes, upcycling, and teaching sewing skills. By joining forces more people can be reached, knowledge can be shared, and a greater impact can be made to reduce textile waste and keep clothes in use for longer.
