Residents, business owners and non-profit organizations are invited to attend this in-person session to learn how to reduce textile waste across Victoria, BC.
A panel of seven experts will share information and answer questions on topics including the impacts of ‘fast fashion’, clothing and gear repair and repurposing, and solutions to reduce textile waste such as reuse and recycling. Following the presentations and panel discussion, attendees have an opportunity to see and feel examples of circular textiles in our community through information booths set up around the room.
Enjoy complimentary coffee and pastries provided by local Victoria businesses. All attendees will also be entered to win a zero-waste door prize.
