HALLS Head Vinnies is inviting everyone to repurpose with purpose by visiting the store and purchasing an outfit to wear on Friday, November 1.
Vinnies aims to help support the community shop sustainably by recycling and reducing waste.
Purchases will help fund mental health, emergency assistance, financial counselling, housing accommodation and youth services.
The fashion industry has become the second largest polluting industry in the world as it contributes 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon towards greenhouse gas emissions every year and Australians consume more than double the global consumption average.
Vinnies Halls Head volunteers, Colleen Townsend, Nat Scott, Amanda Albert, Kerri Davis, Glenda Butler, Pat Harrindine, Sandra Hammer, John Benbow, Harley Marriment, Courtney Baker and Maxine Collinson are excited to wear their repurposed clothes on Dressed by Vinnies Day.
To get involved, visit your Halls Head Vinnies, choose something you love, wear it on the day and share it using the hashtag #DressedbyVinnies/#VinniesWA and tag them on @vinniesWA.
You can also encourage friends, colleagues and classmates to participate by hosting a Dressed by Vinnies day.
There is a free Vinnies styling guide to help you discover stylish and unique clothes, and a host guide to help organise, motivate and inspire friends prior and on the day, all of which can be found on the Dressed by Vinnies website dressed by Vinnies.
