Fashion Forever NI

      

At Live Here Love Here we want to raise awareness on the growing issue of clothing and textile waste.  Fashion should not cost the earth.

Did you know that*:

  • Across the UK, including Northern Ireland, we throw away 1,000,000 tonnes of textile waste each year with 300,000 tonnes ending up in Landfill.
  • We buy more clothes that any other EU country. 
  • We have 5 times more clothes than our grandparents. 
  • “Fast Fashion” has a negative effect on our environment creating carbon emissions, water, chemical and plastic pollution.

We want you to stop putting unwanted clothes in the bin and start thinking about how you can:
