Jessika Guy, from the Green Hair Spa, will be one of the guest speakers. Jessika is the woman behind the Stratford Trashion Week, which will be running this year from April 14th to 19th.

Jessika will be talking about ‘fast fashion’ and the environmental impact of our clothing choices, as well as how we can make environmentally conscious fashion choices.

Kate Simpson, who is the Waste Reduction Coordinator for the City of Stratford, will be discussing textile recycling. The City of Stratford began offering textile recycling in March 2018, and to date the program has been very successful. Tonnes of textiles previously destined for the landfill have been recycled. Two textile diversion bins are located at the Romeo Street landfill, and residents also have the option of a personal pickup service via Diabetes Canada
