M&S Waste Targets
A reminder on the wall at M&S in Leeds of their target for zero waste as part of plan A.
Upcycling is a creative and unique way for clothing to be transformed and as such can play a vital role in diverting unwanted clothing items away from landfill sites.
The Marks and Spencer union with Oxfam will also support their campaign for no clothing to end up in landfill. The importance of reusing, donating and wearing for longer is communicated through this target, and upcycling combines all three.
