Students learn about the negative impact of fashion waste and how to be a 7R's of Fashion Leader.
Have you ever thought about the amount of clothes that are made and consumed every year by the world’s population? Globally, we purchased more than 107 billion items of clothing and 14.5 billion pairs of shoes in 2016. We buy 60% more clothes today than we did 20 years ago, and we keep our clothes for half as long. Fast fashion in many cases means cheap and poor quality clothing that falls apart after a few washes. All of this contributes to our clothing ending up in the landfill - 500,000 tonnes a year in Canada alone, and 92M tonnes globally!
In this workshop, students learn the difference between a linear and circular economy, and how they can be part of the solution by actively participating in the 7R's of Circular Fashion - reduce, reuse, repurpose, repair, resale, rent & recycle.
THIS WAS PREVIOUSLY A LIVE FACILITATED ONLINE WORKSHOP, AND IS NOW A RECORDED SESSION SO TEACHERS CAN DELIVER IN THEIR OWN TIME.
Upon purchase, teachers will receive login details to access the recording, the student workbook and a lesson plan for either grades 4-8 or high school.
