Earlier this week (June 21), as part of the Rethink Reuse Campaign, Value Village took over Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto with this art installation to kick off their International #GiveAShirt event. The primary objective of this is to spread a very important message – to create public awareness on our clothing footprint and our impact on the environment. Together, we can collectively make a difference by simply considering making our next new t-shirt a thrifted or reused one.
I am personally a big supporter when it comes to recycling and reusing clothing items. As seen in many of my previous DIY projects, I love transforming pieces of clothing and shoes I already own into new wardrobe items. This is a great way to reduce the pollution generated by the clothing industry. I hope you’ll join me and Value Village in creating awareness on the Give A Sh!rt campaign.
