Australians are disposing of 23kg of clothing each year. This means 800,000 tonnes of textiles and clothing are being discarded, with 90% ending up in landfill.
As individuals, we need to be conscious of what we are consuming and consider the lifecycle of our purchases.
Nina Gbor is an award-winning sustainability advocate, ethical fashion speaker, climate activist, writer, educator, and founder of Eco Styles. From lived experience and education, Nina writes and speaks about the dynamics between the global South and global North, with focus on inequalities and justice in areas of fashion relating to socio-economics, politics and gender.
Nina has a master’s degree in International Development and is a former sustainable fashion tutor in short courses at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. She coined the phrase ‘get off the fashion trendmill’ which means individuality and self-knowledge should be the premise for consuming clothing, not fashion trends. She is based in Sydney, Australia.
Join us online on Tuesday 25 October for a conversation with the stylish, Nina Gbor. Nina will share her passion for sustainable and ethical fashion, and female empowerment and prove that style & fashion don’t have to come at a cost to people or our planet!
