Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 29th April 2017
The True Cost is an award winning feature length documentary film that explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet.
The rise of 'fast fashion' is making clothing disposable, and the environmental impact is huge. The clothing industry has become the second largest polluter in the world ... second only to oil. Human rights are taking a 2nd place to profits, as our demand for cheap clothing grows.
So what can we do about it? 'Fashion Revolution' is a growing movement worldwide, and it's taking off here in Nelson too. We are aiming to find ways locally that we can shop ethically, cut down on waste and ask retailers 'who made my clothes?'
Join us at 6.30 for drinks and nibbles. The film will begin at 7pm followed by a talk from Jennifer Whitty, Senior lecturer Ngā Pae Māhutonga - The School of Design at Massey University in Wellington and an award winning designer.
