Zero Waste Scotland 190px

A new carbon metric report from ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland shows that clothing is contributing more to climate change than plastic. Clothing is the most environmentally damaging type of household waste, accounting for nearly a third (32%) of the carbon impacts of Scotland’s household waste despite making up only a small proportion, by weight (4%). Yet only a tiny proportion of Scots are aware, with nearly two-thirds saying plastic is the worst offender. 

Now, Zero Waste Scotland is teaming up with creative partners, from online influencers to street artists, to highlight the extent of the problem and incite citizens to question our consumption of clothing.  They include The Rebel Bear, who has created two largescale public artworks based on world-famous paintings in two Scottish cities.
