Do you want to update your wardrobe in a sustainable
and affordable way?
Local residents are being invited to participate in the
first ever Fashion Exchange for Sustainability at the Glenreagh Street TAFE Campus
as part of Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week and the Living Coast Festival
The Fashion Exchange will take place on Thursday 12 November, kicking off with a free morning tea at
10.30am and the opportunity to view the latest works from TAFE fashion students.
The event will be a fun and interactive way to update
your wardrobe and accessories for free, making it a great alternative to buying
new and is brought to the Festival by MidWaste Regional Waste Forum, Coffs
Harbour City Council and North Coast TAFE.
“Everyone is welcome to get involved and come along
for a fun, sustainable event that enables re-use of pre-loved clothes in a
creative way,” said Councillor Sally Townley.
To be involved, just
drop off your pre-loved, good quality clothes or fashion items on 9 and
10 November between 10am and 2pm at the TAFE Campus in Glenreagh Street,
Fashion room G.G.05 and you will be
given your tokens to use to ‘purchase’ other items on the Exchange day.
