ABC RADIO SYDNEY CLOTHES SWAP

  • ABC ULTIMO CENTRE

War on Waste

 

This month, the ABC’s Craig Reucassel is waging a War on Waste, with a thought provoking three-part documentary TV series tackling Australia’s waste issues head-on.

On Saturday 20 May we’re asking you to slow down your fast fashion by joining us for the inaugural ABC Radio Sydney War on Waste Clothes Swap.

Alarmingly, our waste is growing at double the rate of our population. When it comes to fashion, a recent audit by the City of Sydney revealed that six tonnes of textile and fashion waste are going to landfill in Australia every 10 minutes.

We’re on a mission to learn how, together, we can all do something about it. So, raid your wardrobe and join Simon Marnie and the Saturday Breakfast team for a morning of sustainable fashion and fun in conjunction with The Clothing Exchange and Dress for Success.
