messageStitch craftivism on plastic wipes: Friday's 9.30 - 11.30attachment
Posted by klove 07 March, 2019 17:53

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 London’s landfills (which will be full by 2026) and 1 in 3 gets flushed down the toilet ending up in our rivers and beaches… or forming 93% of London’s fatbergs.

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

All resources and toys for any children (there will be needles and scissors around!) will be provided. All welcome! You don’t need to know how to stitch, and the more hand-made the message the better! I can teach you some stitches and it’s really easy. All you need is a willingness to stitch messages for the environment.

Please join us!
Friday's 9.30 – 11.30 at Aneto Café (58-60 East Dulwich Road, SE22 9AX) at the back.
#plastic free wipes

*We're using pre-consumer waste wipes, off cuts from a wipes factory which were going to be thrown away. Plus they didn't have any moisture on them, so it's a firmer surface. No actual wipes were purchased in this project!

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