@VirginTrains ‏Old uniforms into new! Via @edie | #Upcycle w @AlbertKennedyTr @hubbubnet to help #LGBT youth

This is a “win” on every level! Virgin Trains uniforms will create items such as blankets, bags, and coats which will be donated to homeless charity The Albert Kennedy Trust to help young #LGBT rough sleepers. Not only does it promote textile reuse it also gives opportunities for our offenders to learn new skills which will help them once they have been released, while also decreasing recidivism. #UK is a leader in promoting a #circulareconomy. This is a great, collaborative example on how to re-engineer our wasteful, #textile #supplychain.
