Little Green Change's challenges and competitions


Transforming Textiles Competition

Can you turn pre-loved textiles into something fabulous? Whether it's a stained t-shirt, a torn pair of jeans, or an unwanted duvet cover, the only rule of this competition is nothing can be purchased new - unless it's second hand, for example from a charity shop and proof of purchase can be provided.

The environmental problem:
According to the UN, the fashion industry produces up to 8% of global carbon emissions, with dyeing textiles being the second-largest cause of water pollution globally. With tonnes of textiles being burned or buried in landfill sites every day, and workers in the global textile industry often being poorly paid and working in appalling conditions, it makes sense for us to reuse and upcycle whenever we can.

How to enter:
Send us a photo of you making your item, and one of you with your finished creation, to info@littlegreenchange.com. One winning entry will be selected from the Junior category (ages 8-13) and one from the Senior category (ages 14-19). Entries will be accepted from individuals and from schools. Deadline: Friday 6th September 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
