Taz Kelleher will appear on the Grow Stage Saturday 30th March 2019 @12:00 & Sunday 31st March @17:00
Join Taz at Thrive during How to Quit Fast Fashion
The rise of “fast fashion” has changed the way we buy and wear clothes, but at what cost? Fashion is the 2nd more polluting industry in the world producing billions of tonnes of waste each year, and that’s before we look at energy consumption and employment conditions. It’s time to question why that t-shirt only cost €3, consider where it came from, whose hands it touched and essentially the print it’s going to leave on our planet. In this talk, Taz will breakdown the negative environmental effects of the fast fashion industry and teach you how to engage in sustainable fashion.
