Big Sale for the “Sustainable Textile Day”

"Sustainable Textile Day"

On the occasion of the European Week for Waste Reduction (SERD) which will take place from November 19 to 27, 2022 on the theme “Sustainable Textile”, the Town Hall of Monaco will join this new edition through various actions. Among the highlights, the Municipal Institution, under the leadership of Marjorie Crovetto, Deputy Mayor, in charge of the Living Environment, Environment and Sustainable Development, is offering a “Sustainable Textile Day” on Saturday November 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. which will take place at A Casa d’i Soci (the House of Associations).

The textile industry, which is particularly polluting, has a significant impact on the environment (greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, etc.). The Town Hall therefore wanted to organize a textile sale and offer Monegasques and residents the possibility to sell the clothes they no longer use and which are piling up in the cupboards! This sale of second-hand textile products allows everyone to participate in the action of recycling in favor of sustainable development.

Interested? Reserve your spot now for free at the sale by sending an email to jbonnin@mairie.mc

At the same time, various workshops and awareness stands will be available to visitors.

Workshops:

  • Workshop for children organized by the Monaco Media Library: “Making a fabric bookmark”
  • Two master classes organized by the Organza Monaco store: “Upgrading a classic dress into a haute couture garment”
  • Workshop to create seamless bags and small accessories with the Ecopolis association, which will also raise public awareness of textile overconsumption
  • Workshop with a seamstress to learn how to make small sewing repairs.
