“It is often much easier to consume what is convenient without thinking too much about the larger impact or consequences of our choices.” (Natalie Chanin, 2013).
I have teamed up with Zerowaste Scotland for a FREE afternoon of film, sewing, swopping and chat.
We hope to help reduce clothing waste and inspire you to do the same!
Bring along some clothes to swop, alter or repair and watch the free screening of “The True Cost” – a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes. (Please note the film is listed a 12, but children are welcome to the rest of the event!)
Hope to see some of you there – even for part of the afternoon, if you can’t make the whole event.
When: Sat 6th May 2017
Where: Atholl Centre, Atholl Road. Pitlochry. PH16 5BX
