World Environment Day

Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of the United Nations World Environment Day; this year’s theme is “Green Economy: Does It Include You?” A green economy as one which is low carbon, resource efficient, and socially inclusive. For details, visit their website at http://www.unep.org/wed/theme/.

So how can we help? One way is to recycle and reuse existing materials rather than put them into landfills. Here are some of our “green” WeAllSew projects and posts:

  1. I started sewing again when I started using and making modern cloth nappies (diapers) – it’s great for the environment to re-use rather than throw something out after one use!
