Metro Sustainability Breakfast – Mar 14

On average, we buy three times more clothes than we did in the 80’s, and it is estimated that one garbage truck full of clothing is landfilled globally every second. Cheaper clothing, fast fashion trends, and an overall increase in consumption is resulting in more and more clothing waste. In Metro Vancouver we threw away 44 million pounds of clothing last year!

Join us to learn about Metro Vancouver’s new textiles waste reduction campaign that supports the transition of fashion to the circular economy.
