The interactive display will offer practical tips on how to reduce clothes waste. Hampshire County Council’s waste prevention team will also be on hand at set times to answer questions. The event marks Sustainable Fashion Week. and coincides with Winchester Green Week. 
Councillor Nick Adams-King, the County Council’s Cabinet Member for Universal Services, said: “More than 300,000 tonnes of unwanted clothes are thrown away in the UK every year some of which have only been used a few times. This is enormously damaging to the environment, and also costly to local authorities, including the County Council, as taxpayers end up picking up the bill for the disposal of this unnecessary waste. The Great Green Wardrobe is coming to Winchester to show how a few lifestyle changes that keep clothes out of the bin, can make a huge difference to the planet, and help people save money too.” 
The Great Green Wardrobe will be located on the ground floor of The Brooks Shopping Centre, Middle Brook Street, Winchester, SO23 8QY, opposite Primark. 
The Smart Living team will be available to answer questions between 11am-2pm on 25, 27, 29 and 30 September, and 3, 4, 8 October.
