Desserts and Delights and doing your bit for the environment
What impact do YOUR clothes have on the environment?
These are questions we discussed while sampling Desserts & Delights in October.
2,700 litres of water are used in the process of making a T shirt! Who makes your clothes? What impact does fashion have on the environment? Do we really need so many clothes? Should we make more use the ones we’ve already got? Could we buy our next item of clothing from a charity shop? It made us think – as you can tell from the display board we put together.
There are ethical clothing companies, who strive hard to ensure fairness in production, process and marketing. We brought and swapped some of our own clothes, and 2 large bags of our very good quality clothes were taken to Oxfam the next day, to be sold on.
Thanks to all the ladies who attended and discussed this increasingly important topic. We are already planning the next one.
