Each year we send about 300,000 tonnes of clothing to landfill each year. In 2007 a report by the BBC stated that 'an area the size of Warwick (109 square miles) is sent to landfill', were now in 2018 and by 2020 we will have used up all our landfill in London. This is a shocking statistic, however, it has been said so much it seems to have lost a lot of its impact. .
Lets consider a few other factors, the average person is said to keep an item of clothing for only 1-2 years before discarding it, being worn only an estimated 7 times.
.
Lets consider the some other impacts of our clothing. Generally a person will wash an item of clothing after each use, using 15-30 gallons of water per use, washing away fabric fibres contributing to the already '1.4 million trillion' fabric fibres estimate to already be polluting our oceans. Almost every creature on our oceans will have some form of fabric fibres and/or plastic in their system, then by eating those fish, we are passing this into our systems. Pretty grim right, its a cold statistic, but one that we can't shy away from anymore, especially with the fashion industry being the second biggest polluter (second only to oil) in the world. 🌍
.
But as a consumer there are a lot of measurable steps, because one person can make a difference. You can commit to wear each item of clothing for 30+ times, make wise choices on the items you buy. Remind yourself that clothes worth wearing are worth repairing. Also, research the fabric you clothes are made from, Denim if washed less have a considerably longer life span and natural fibres like wool are actually self cleaning! 😱Like magic right! And the other pieces you must wash (like your socks and nickers) consider investing in a guppy bag?
.
.
At Lemonade Monday we want you to buy clothing because you LOVE them and can commit to the 30 day promise. We will also do our best to offer useful advise in after care for your new life partner, too ensure that each piece will last a long as they are loved.

A new report from Buy Clean shows that 25 percent of the world’s carbon emissions pass through a loophole in climate policy and are not accounted for in the national emissions reduction targets set in the Paris climate agreement😱.
.
.
.
This is because consumer products like food and clothing, are often manufactured in nations with lax pollution controls and then shipped to nations with aggressive climate targets. Passing through a form of loophole that lets both parties off the hook for reducing the pollution that causes climate change😖😤.

This week on “In The Closet” we talk to our Artist in Residence, Barbara Wheeler, who is spending three weeks in Wellington conducting formal research of historical botanical collections, design practice, dye plant research and zero waste apparel design🌹. .
.
.
Barbara is the founder of ethical fashion Label @every_thread_counts_ based in Canberra, Australia. Her garment designs are slowly handcrafted, practical, well made and beautiful and are created from ethically sourced silk, wool, linen and GOTS certified organic cotton, botanical dyes and prints. Accessories are also upcycled from reclaimed fabrics. .
.
.
Each garment tells a story about the place and holds the fragrance of leaves that gave colour to the cloth. The clothing is non toxic and can even be composted at its end-of-life.
.

nau mai Barbara! 😀

Wonky beet juice anyone? This is ReJuce, Thomas Fletcher's mission to reduce food waste and create delicious organic cold pressed juices. To date their social enterprise has saved over 150 tonnes from going to landfill.
They have the most delicious juices that are packed with absolutely amazing nutrients. A perfect partner to Tomorrow's Rethink Gathering where they will be complimentary. -
Fruit and veg farmers reported that they wasted around 37,000 tonnes of produce every year due to pressures from the supermarkets (16% of their crop). This quantity would be enough to provide 250,000 people with their recommended 5 portions of fruit and veg a day FOR A YEAR.
.
Rejuce are only part of the food waste solution - we need supermarkets to change. Join Thomas @rejuce
-

Thank you Thomas for treating us at The Rethink Gathering!
