Recycle for Lewisham

Making Rubbish Fashion


Lewisham Council has worked with fashion and design students from LESOCO , to raise awareness about the need to dispose of litter from ‘Food on the Go’ responsibly.

The students created clothes from packaging of well known fast food outlets. They were helped in their quest by kind donations of obsolete packaging  from KFC, Mcdonalds and Muffin Break.

Their stunning creations were exhibited at Lewisham Library and Lewisham shopping centre.

The creations demonstrate that not only is recycling fun, it is possible to make rubbish fashion and to behave responsibly as well.
