Bermuda Is Love Free clothing donation on Saturdays
Bermuda Is Love to host free clothing contest at Elliot Elementary School on Saturday [Dec 18] from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, where they will “donate clothes for all genders, sizes and ages”.
A spokesperson said: “Bermuda Is Love already had a clothing drive on November 13 where we collected clothes from the public. During our free clothing distribution on Saturday, we will be giving away these clothes. Unfortunately, we can no longer accept clothing donations at this time.
“The goal of our free clothing competition is to provide free clothing to those in need, as well as to reduce the impact of fast fashion and consumerism on our society. Clothing is a basic human need and a human right, and Bermuda Is Love believes that every person should have equal access to affordable and sustainable clothing.
“Plus, the fast-paced fashion industry encourages a throwaway culture because clothes are cheap and aren’t built to last. The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry on the planet and produces 10% of global emissions, which worsens climate change.
“Thus, we encourage the public to buy less clothes, to buy ethically and sustainably, to buy second-hand, to recycle your clothes, to donate what you don’t wear and to treat your clothes with care to prolong their life. lifetime.
“Additionally, Bermuda Is Love was formed last year by a group of friends who wanted to make a positive impact in our community and tackle social and economic inequalities. Our goal is to promote community and collaboration, to create a Bermuda where everyone’s basic needs are met and where everyone is treated equally, fairly and respectfully, so that we can all be the best version of ourselves. .
“We organize garbage drives, blood drives, clothing drives, free clothing giveaways, recycling events, community gardens, and volunteer food programs. [Christ Church Warwick and the Cathedral] and shelters [Transformational Living Centre and Teen Haven].
