Mend With Me

Join us on Saturday, March 16th from 10:00-12:00p at the Deep Cove Cultural Centre (in the same space as the Seymour Art Gallery). I’m covering the rental fee, you BYOTea. We’ll have a sewing machine, ironing board, patching materials, thread, needles, etc. on hand.

Why Mend?

  • North Americans send 9.5 million tonnes of waste to landfill each year

  • Because it’s fun (and because we need to start acting like we give a shit).

  • It takes 2,650 litres of water to make one t-shirt (and 2.1 billion people do not have access to clean water. To drink.)

  • The World Bank estimates that up to 20% of all global industrial water pollution is from textile dyeing

  • Over 100 BILLION garments are produced annually. Many will be worn a few times and thrown “away”. (Fast fashion, you suck.)
