Fashion roadshow encouraging recycling of old clothes coming to Fenland
A FASHION roadshow encouraging people to recycle their old clothes is coming to Fenland on Saturday.
The ‘Wear it, Love it, Share it’ project aims to encourage people to recycle their clothes and hunt out second-hand bargains. A host of activities will be held during the day including catwalk shows of outfits available from local charity shops.
Clothes from the catwalks, starting at 12.30pm and 2pm, will be made available for purchase at the second-hand fashion market immediate after the show.
Fenland councillor Peter Murphy, from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership, said: “‘Wear it, Love it, Share it’ aims to stop clothes that are no longer wanted ending up in landfill.
“We want to encourage people to donate or recycle clothes instead of harming the environment. I am sure those with their fingers on the fashion pulse will find themselves a bargain or will learn how to make an old outfit current in true Gok Wan style.”

“By reusing and recycling clothes it also reduces our impact on the environment.”
