DIARYdispatch

Sweet Notions (www.sweetnotions.org), a website dedicated to recycling fashion in the name of charity, is launching in the UK in September. Last year, discarded fashion created 7.5 billion tons of toxic landfill waste and that’s just in the UK. The site is currently seeking donations from fashion and design houses for the cause; over-stock, damaged, seconds, forgotten items can all be donated to help create new items, which in turn will raise money in order to empower women rescued from trafficking, addiction or homelessness.
