The City Council's "Reuse Roadshow" will make stops in locations around Cork city this month, to raise awareness and celebrate 'National Reuse Month'.
The roadshow hopes to support local charity and vintage shops, while highlighting their practical role in reusing clothes, in addition to raising money for charities and creating local employment.
It will also showcase the clothing available in charity and vintage shops across the city such as Barnardos and Eva May Vintage, as well as presenting the upcycling skills from the students at St. John's Central College.
Munster Technological University, Clearstream and Nano Nagle Place are among the locations hosting the roadshow.
Mary Walsh, Cork City Council’s Environmental Awareness Officer, commented that: “the aim of the Roadshow is to highlight the social and environmental impacts of fast fashion by promoting the merits of reuse and the economic, social and environmental contribution that the preloved fashion sector can make to our society”. She added “the delivery of the Roadshow is being facilitated by Cork Environmental Forum, who do tremendous work in the community working towards a better environment for all.”
