Prevent textile waste this Christmas with Shrub
Santa Beaver Christmas tree decorations made with fabric from Shrub Coop.
With Christmas drawing nearer, the pressure to shop is steadily growing. This year, instead of adding to the mountains of unwanted gifts that will end up in charity shops or landfill before the end of January, why not get creative and upcycle some textile gifts?
Some of the following ideas require a bit of sewing know-how but others can be completed without a needle and thread!
Our Swapshop has an abundance of scrap fabrics that you can choose from to make your projects - drop by our Zero Waste Hub to rescue save some textile waste!
A customer looks through our haberdashery section in the Zero Waste Hub.
We’d love to hear how you get on if you make any of these projects, and let us know if you have any other upcycling projects you’re working on.
SHRUB Coop is supported through a combination of grant funding and generous donations from our community. We’re grateful for all their support. Find out more about our grant funders by clicking on the logos above.
