One of the Youth Climate Summit Ambassadors is demonstrating how you can combine creativity with sustainably by setting up her own clothes shop. But rather than using materials, Ambassador Tian takes in old clothes, puts on some new designs and gives them a new lease of life.
Tian sells her clothes-reborn via depop. And with other websites like Etsy, there is no shortage of opportunities for youngsters to engage in a sustainable climate-friendly money-making venture.
Ambassador Alina gave a climate speech at her school’s annual Fantasy Fashion show, even having the support of fashion guru Stella McCartney to try and make a push toward more sustainable clothing.
