Whose waste is it anyway? Is a new event taking place at the Brighthelm Centre, Brighton on Thursday 1 November 2018 between 10:00 – 3pm. Carrie Cort, founder of Sussex Green Living is giving a talk on the shocking journey of a cotton T shirt and the environmental effects for the fast fashion industry.
Waste is a hot topic right now. We are all becoming increasingly more aware of the effect of what our buying choices have on the environment. Consumers are trying their hardest to reduce their waste and with positive new start ups springing up such as zero waste businesses, changes are being made slowly but surely. However, there needs to be change beyond this so where does the responsibility lay and more importantly, Whose Waste is it Anyway?
Join us for a day of informative talks and engaging insights from thought leaders into this trending topic. From fast fashion waste to food waste to sustainable living, there are talks about every aspect of waste.
We will also be having a selection of local eco-friendly businesses setting up their own market stalls available to talk about their innovative businesses.
