sustainability chat with veronica fletcher

This week we sat down with Veronica Fletcher to learn more about sustainability and how to recycle textiles. Veronica has a passion for all things eco-friendly. After growing up on a farm in Ireland, she went on to study Chemistry and Environmental Sciences. Veronica has also volunteered in many sustainability roles, including conservation efforts in Bangladesh and teaching Environmental Sciences to schoolchildren in Kenya.

Each year enough textiles are sent to landfill to completely fill Sydney harbor.

95% of this can be prevented. One way to get rid of old clothes is to compost them (although you should always look to reuse, recycle or repurpose the clothes first).

Lots of people are vaguely aware that you can compost clothes but don’t fully understand how. Veronica Fletcher is here to arm you with the facts on how to compost your own clothes successfully.
