Waste to Wear: Activities

Buying Clothes Why do we buy certain clothes and not others? This activity takes approximately 20 minutes and asks children to rate factors they would consider as most important when buying clothes.

Eco-friendly Fashion Accessories How can a product be made from reclaimed materials? This activity takes one hour and includes a homework exercise. It encourages children to look at a range of materials and to make some design decisions about what they might make.

Sustainable Fashion Scrapbook Can we wear recycled or reclaimed garments and still look good? This is a continuous exercise for the duration of the unit, which encourages children to source images of clothing, which are sustainable.
