Recycle Week 2013 – Re-imagining ladies tights

As well as going out to speak to residents about about recycling and composting during National Recycle Week 2013, Lewisham Council also worked in conjunction with an arts organisation called Platform 7 who came to Catford and had some interesting methods of catching the attention of those in the area.

With additional support from Arts Council England, ‘Re-imagining Ladies Tights’ raised awareness of textile recycling by exploring the politics of tights and stockings.  This opportunity allows Akleriah, with support from Platform-7, to explore the image, gender politics, social and material value of women’s tights.

Full details on all the activities from the week long event can be found on the following link http://re-imaginingtights.tumblr.com/

Recycle Week 2013

On Wednesday 19th the team went to the shopping centre in Lewisham where we had a small stand and throughout the day spoke to many residents and shoppers giving advice and information on all manner of environmental issues. Many people just wanted advice and reassurance about what to recycle. Others were asking about the new Service Standards that we are currently introdcing.

We also took requests for compost bins, recycling bins and gave out bin stickers, leaflets and spaghetti measures and freezing clips to encourage more people to Love Food Hate Waste.
