Arts campaign initiative to stop waste within the clothing industry.

Liz Lancashire looking to set up an arts campaign within Gloucestershire to raise awareness of the colossal waste of clothing nationally.

Liz says, 'This is a massive problem - at present one organisation in Bristol alone is "recycling" 20 tonnes of clothing every day, mainly by shipping it off to poorer countries where it decimates the local textile industries.'

The campaign group will have a re-use and upcycle focus and will run events, workshops, sales forums etc. Liz would like to link up with a national campaign such as WRAP, or collaborate with others and possibly apply for grants.
