So last week at Monki Gras, in the afternoon there was a panel on Sustainable Fashion. The panel was headed up by Olivia Pinnock and had representatives from:

The biggest take away from the panel was 10% of all Fast Fashion goes straight into landfill.

In 2005 they found out that all London Fire Brigade fire-hoses were going straight into Landfill. They decided to prevent this from happening and have since been recycling and reusing all the fire-hoses, not only that 50% of all their profits are donate to Fire Charities.

We were told that if there is ever an issue with one of their products they will do everything in their power to resolve it. Even down to resizing a belt because the owner had lost weight and it no longer fit.

So I bought a belt, my last ever belt. It won't stretch, like leather. It's vegan. It's stopping waste and landfill. It's helping Fire Charities.

I love my new belt so I thought I'd share this.
