Sustainable Spring Fair

Spring fair

The Cheshire West Council's Waste team is currently focusing on textiles and how climate change is affected by fast fashion.

The way we make, use and throw away our clothes is unsustainable.

Textile production contributes more to climate change than international aviation and shipping combined, consumes lake-sized volumes of fresh water and creates chemical and plastic pollution.

Synthetic fibres can be found in the deep sea, in Arctic sea ice, in fish and shellfish.

We like to think that we do our bit to recycle old clothes whether this is at local charity shops or at the kerbside but in reality there is a lot more we can do.

With this in mind, we would like to invite you to a 'Sustainable Spring Fair' at Rowton Hall in Chester on Saturday 21 March 2020.

The event is open from 11am to 4pm for you to browse around the small traders selling their sustainable products, attend workshops about mending clothes and being creative with textiles, demonstrations and find out what you can do to reduce the amount of clothes you throw away.
