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.
Date: Saturday 20 May
Bring: Up to four items of clothing
Venue: ABC Ultimo Centre, 700 Harris St, Ultimo
Registration: 8.45am sharp
Saturday Breakfast with Simon Marnie live broadcast: 9am–10am
Clothes Swap: 10am–12pm
Nomadic Café, a pedal powered coffee cart, will be on hand to provide your Saturday morning coffee so make sure you bring your reusable cup. Water and light refreshments will also be available to keep energy levels up, and ABC Radio Sydney’s resident DJ Robbie Buck will be spinning your favourite fashionable tunes.
