Hi all, @JessT @Marina . Minutes from the All-Party Parliamentary Meeting I attended here:
Vicious cycle: delicate wash releases more plastic microfibres
Study finds 800,000 extra fibres are shed than on standard washing machine setting
Making carbon-neutral clothes out of algae: the designers taking on fast fashion
Finally in Italy 🇮🇹 the first online store where you can hand in your old clothes in exchange for new clothes at a cheaper price!
It's a website which allows you to send them your old clothes and they will review their conditions and sell them on their website for a relatively cheap price 10-15eur. Clothes which are not chosen instead are donated to a charity.
I find that it’s a good initiative to retrain people’s mindsets about consumerism, which is not an easy task to take on board considering that we so consumer focused.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
