This week we’ve joined forces with In Our Nature Manchester to talk clothing and the climate – what are the impacts and what can you do about it? We’ve taken over their social channels for the week where we’re sharing tips and ideas and inviting you to pledge to try one of the following: Repair, Repurpose, Thrift or Swap.

In Our Nature is Manchester’s largest community climate programme to support households and communities to live more sustainably. It’s a collaboration between Manchester City Council, Manchester Climate Change Agency, environmental charity Hubbub, Amity CIC, Commonplace and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

As part of our week-long takeover, today at 2pm we’re hosting a Meet The Brands event on Instagram Live.

Join us via the @InOurNatureMCR Insta account to hear from these brilliant local brands working hard to make fashion more sustainable:
