November is a month full of discounts and appeals to consumption and also the month of waste reduction and prevention, this year dedicated to textiles.
By 2025, all members states of the European Union will have to create treatment streams for discarded clothing. This does not mean that there will be no waste, but only waste treatment.
Therefore, it is increasingly important to repair and reuse clothes. At Vintage for a Cause we will hold several workshops and awareness-raising actions during the week of 19-27 November, in different cities, involving all stakeholders.

Whether in the making of our clothes or in the sewing clubs From Granny To Trendy we divert textile waste all year round. For every gram of fabric reused, we save water and natural resources.
Our Grannies will during this week lead workshops on mending and creating Christmas accessories and gifts, helping and inspiring youngsters to buy less and mend more.
