Upcycling and Sustainability



Sewing Together does both !


Upcycling is defined as creating something new from discarded materials by repairing, refurbishing, or repurposing them. What formed from a growing concern about collective waste has become an outlet of creativity for many people who are focused on keeping things out of landfills. There are many techniques used to upcycle, as well as many products that can be upcycled. In a world where recycling is becoming limited, upcycling is a great way to avoid throwing objects away !

Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products. It addresses the whole system of how clothing is produced, who produced it how long the life span of a product is before it reaches landfill. This means dealing with interdependent social, cultural, ecological, and financial systems.
