As we roll further into September, pop-up stores, dance marathons, rock concerts, and exhibitions beckon. Of course, whether it’s for the weekend or planning ahead, don’t miss out on Singapore’s new F&B openings this month or upcoming theatre shows either.
Renew Earth Sweat Shop: Making fashion sustainable
For a small country, Singapore produces tonnes of fashion waste. Many have stepped up to thrift and purchase pre-loved goods at secondhand stores.
Renew Earth Sweat Shop is contributing to that initiative of sustainability. 80 participants upcycled 200kg of fashion waste over four months, and some of the resulting pieces will be showcased at the pop up and are available for sale.
You can also try your hand at weaving, using an industrial sewing machine, or participate in the community sorting house.
Renew Earth Sweat Shop pop-up runs till Sept 30, 2021 at Temasek Shophouse, 28 Orchard Road, Singapore 238832. Workshops at the pop-up are free and open to the public by RSVP.
