Last year my products were chosen for many fashion shoots and events which goes to show that sustainable fashion is slowly coming into the limelight. More promotion and exposure leads to more sales and interest in these items which put fast fashion to shame.
Ask yourselves these questions next time you treat yourself to a new clothing item/product: am I actively taking part in change for a better planet? Am I ready to leave my comfort zone and change my habits? Can I champion sustainability and encourage others to do the same?
If not, you should reconsider your priorities and consider how you are impacting our already crippling planet.
Use your time, power and energy to bring positive change to the world!
Have you ever wondered how many tyres and inner tubes people use and discard every day? Have you ever thought about the number of plastic accessories purchased from high-street stores that also end up on landfills? Thousands? Millions?
Shockingly, the number is in the billions and not only are they discarded but they take hundreds of years to break down, polluting the environment as they go.
The problem with cheap products is that people love them for a short time span before getting bored and throwing them away, making them extremely unsustainable. Mass produced products don’t offer the same thrill and joy as hand-made, unique and sustainable items.
Why not change your habits to accommodate a happier and more creative lifestyle?
Give more value to your life by selecting unique pieces that brighten your style and your soul!
The start of 2022 has been very exciting. I moved back to London where I now meet with more eco-conscious costumers, fellow upcyclers and like-minded people. I have set up a workshop on the Isle of Dogs where I hand craft and sell my pieces. If you ever find yourself needing a last-minute gift or a unique, handmade treat for yourself, pop along and have a browse! Alternatively, if you are interested in the craft itself and wonder how I create my statement accessories out of scrap rubber, then why not come along and see for yourself? My interactive classes are both relaxed and fun, making them the perfect activity for beginners.
