messageStitch craftivism on plastic wipes: Friday's 9.30 - 11.30attachment
Posted by klove March 07, 05:52PM

I used wet wipes for about 6 years before realising that most were made out of plastic (i.e. polyester!) and will take 200 years to biodegrade. Most end up in Londonís landfills (which will be full by 2026) and 1 in 3 gets flushed down the toilet ending up in our rivers and beachesÖ or forming 93% of Londonís fatbergs.

Please join us in stitching messages into baby-wipes and sending them to our MPís and supermarkets asking for action on plastic wipes.

All resources and toys for any children (but just be aware there will be needles and scissors around!) will be provided. All welcome! You donít need to know how to stitch, and the more hand-made the message the better! I can teach you some stitches and itís really easy. All you need is a willingness to stitch messages for the environment.

Please join us!
Friday's 9.30 Ė 11.30 at Aneto Cafť (58-60 East Dulwich Road, SE22 9AX) at the back.

Tomorrow morning... if anyone's around it would be lovely to have some company while stitching!

Come and join this lovely group of stitchers at the back of Aneto's cafe. Most Friday's and maybe some Saturday's if that's easier for people.

Stitch for the environment!
