Our favourite DIY fashion projects of the week

Susta-Style by Bronte Hogarth

DID YOU KNOW: Australians collectively spend over $12 billion a year on more than a billion fashion items, but discarded clothing makes up 4-5% of waste going into our landfills!

Nothing that can be recycled or upcycled should be going into landfill! By recycling, reusing and upcycling through DIY projects we can save an estimated 17kg per month (200kg per year) of C02 a month.

We have searched the web for easy Fashion DIY’s and upcycling projects to save you time and energy, that you can invest into a new project.
