Climate Quick Tip: Environmental Embroidery

Mend and upcycle clothes with small holes using a visible mending technique. Embroider over or around the tears by stitching creative designs like a flower or using beads to mend or accentuate the holes. 

Don’t let your clothes contribute to textile waste. Instead, use visible mending to stitch and embroider simple designs using colorful string or beads to cover or accentuate the flaws.
