Recycling was given whole new twist at Touchstones Rochdale this week as clothes were altered, tweaked and revamped in the name of sustainable fashion.
The free sewing masterclass, took place on Thursday 15 November, organised by Recycle for Greater Manchester, Viridor and Rochdale Borough Council as part of Watch Your Waste, a scheme to encourage people to reuse and recycleclothing which would benefit from being turned into something completely new.
Rochdales Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “Recycling old clothes is not only a great way of looking after the environment, it’s also a cost effective way of getting a new winter wardrobe. This is a great opportunity and I’d encourage as many residents as possible to sign up.”
Future workshops & evenys are planned.
