Wrong Sides Together
It’s part of the answer to global warming, and we think that’s exciting! We can do something about saving our species and have fun at the same time… whilst eating cake!
The Fashion Industries is one of the most wasteful industries on the planet.
The amount of pesticides, water and carbon the clothing industry uses is shocking, not to mention the unnecessary waste during production and after the life of the garments. On average, just one person in the UK will produce 70 Kg of textile waste per year!
If we carry on in this way, we will use up all our planetary resources whilst heating up the Earth creating an environment inhospitable for humans and other animals. In fact, this is already happening.
Do you know where your clothes are made and by who? The simple answer is NO!
It’s true that even retailers don’t know exactly were their clothes are made. Unless you buy your clothes from ethical retailers who value ‘transparency’ then you won’t be able to find out who made your clothes and if they were produced in a safe, ethical environment by fairly-paid employees. The horrible truth is that the clothes we buy from high street shops are made in dangerous conditions by disgustingly low paid employees who have no rights.A Fashion Revolution
The exciting bit is that YOU can change this…
…your cash is powerful, vote with your pounds and stop buying fast fashion. Wrong Sides Together is a group of men, women and children who meet at Gatis twice a month to do something about the negative effects of the fashion industry, learn some new skills, save money and most of all have fun… and did we mention cake?
There are already so many garments in existence there is no need to keep buying new. We’re not the only people who are buying from charity shops, using free shops, car boot sales, hosting clothes swaps and buying used clothes online, there are hundreds of groups and millions of individuals across the world who are already part of the clothing revolution!
