For our September meeting (Tuesday 25th 7-9pm), Leigh McAlea from the charity Traid is coming to speak to us about upcycling, recycling, and sustainability in the clothing industry. As part of this talk, Traid have asked our members to please bring any unwanted clothing items with them to donate on the night. They will then calculate how much carbon our donations have offset! For more information on Traid, please see their website: https://www.traid.org.uk/
And for details on the WI’s own End Plastic Soup campaign about stopping microfibres from clothing ending up in the ocean: https://www.thewi.org.uk/campaigns/current-campaigns-and-initiatives/end-plastic-soup
Visitors are always welcome!
