To make our wardrobes sustainable, we must cut how many new clothes we buy by 75%

We started Bridport Fashion Revolution to highlight the massive environmental impact of the fashion industry, suggesting why and how we could change this, whilst still being fun AND building a more sustainable system that would strengthen our local economy. This has included films, talks, clothes swaps, pre-loved sales, teaching mending and upcycling skills, re-thinking your wardrobe and more. If this is something that interests you please get in touch here.
Our vision is to build a network of local people who are working, producing, processing, or selling sustainable clothing locally. If this is you, please get in touch

Events we have organised to promote solutions
Stitch it Don’t Ditch it is a campaign to encourage repairing clothes. We held a gathering in Bucky Doo.
We programme films and talks to Inform and debate
We worked with local traders and held a Pre-loved and vintage market which keeps clothes in circulation for longer, cutting their carbon footprint.
We got a great response to our clothes swap and released clothes that aren’t being worn from wardrobes and back into circulation.
The most sustainable clothes are those you already have. This workshop helped people to re-think their wardrobe before buying anything new.
We organised workshops to show some simple techniques of how to upcycle and create new clothes from old.
