Event:
Plus fun and interactive community stalls

In the lead up to Fashion Revolution Day, Willoughby City Council is hosting a FREE screening of the award-winning documentary RiverBlue on Thursday, 4 April 2019 at Zenith Theatre, Chatswood.

Narrated by actor Jason Priestley, the groundbreaking documentary follows international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, as he uncovers the extensive pollution impacts of the global fashion industry.

Eco-fashion stylist and Red Cross Ambassador, Alex Van Os, will be in attendance on the evening and offer solutions that inspire hope for a more sustainable future.

As part of the event, complimentary nibbles will be served before the movie, and drinks can be purchased at the bar.

Complementing the screening is a selection of fun and interactive community stalls to browse before the movie:

  • Room A Recycled Products – Your chance to buy some unique handmade goodies like cushions, aprons, scrunchies and more, all made locally from recycled denim and with love!

  • Boomerang Bags – Purchase some unique tote bags hand made by our local volunteer-run community groups, all from recycled fabric.

  • Tees to Totes – Learn how to make your own tote shopping bag from an old T-shirt with their easy no-sew method!

    Recycle your Old Denim!

    Feeling inspired by RiverBlue? Bring a pair of denim jeans, jacket or skirt in a good condition and Willoughby City Council will donate them to a local charity or someone in need on your behalf. Damaged denim garments that can't be worn anymore can also be donated and will be recycled into new materials.


    Bookings are essential to attend this event; please reserve your place today at www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au. Early bookings are advised as places are strictly limited.

    For more information on the event, please visit www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au.
