Sustainable Living Week Live Lessons

Did you know that in the UK we buy more than 2 tonnes of clothing each minute? And that a million tonnes of textiles are discarded per year?

Introducing our new themed week of lessons, this year’s Sustainable Living Week will focus on circular economy, the impacts of fashion and many ideas on how to turn the tide towards a more sustainable relationship with our clothing.

Bespoke sessions for Early Years, and Upper Primary/S2 are available. Sessions will be recorded and are supported with resources and activities that classes can carry out after the lesson. 

Activity for the week: We will invite classes to look into their pre-loved garments that can no longer be used, and come up with a design for transforming them into something different and useful. Watch this spaces for resources!

Children’s author and illustrator Emily Gravet will be reading her book ‘Too Much Stuff’ to our younger audience (Early years-P3)

We are grateful to our partners from the Scottish Government, Scottish Book Trust, Scottish Fair Trade Forum, and The Or Foundation for their support in making this week of lessons happen..
