Green Drinks on Waste Minimisation

Kim Warren and Julia Roebuck led the February session of Green Drinks at the Media Centre on waste Minimisation.

"Plastic waste is a symptom of a single-use culture" said Kim, who works on waste projects with HoTT (Holmfirth Transition Town) and Enviro Kirklees and has developed innovative solutions for festivals.

Julia has developed innovate textile recycling and "upcycling" schemes. "We have solutions - stuff can be designed better, to last longer or be easily re-used.

"We can repair machines and mend things and learn to become more self-sufficient."

Shop Swap Sew is an event promoted by Upcycle Fashion @upcyclefashion and Fair and Funky @fair_funky is planned for Saturday 18th April (14.0 - 16.00) at Holmfirth Town Hall.

At this event, you can bring items of clothing you no longer wear and exchange them for garments that are new-to-you. Whilst you wait for the swap, shop in the ethical marketplace, and join in the upcycling workshops to learn how to repurpose your clothes.
