Op Shop Fashion Challenge and Zoom Talk with Ethically Kate

In the month of May, we are supporting sustainability and getting our shopping fix via our local thrift stores! Share photos of your favourite op shop outfits, and join us in person or via Zoom for a talk with Instagram sustainability star Kate Hall of Ethically Kate!

Zoom Talk with Kate Hall 1


Elma Turner Library, 25 May at 12.30pm

Living with less waste and making ethical purchases is hard when life is hectic. I totally get it. I use positivity and leading by example to show others how simple it can be to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Through story telling and interactive speaking, I will give you tools and positive habits to take away with you and instill in your life, no matter how chaotic it gets.

This talk is suitable for those who've just begun to understand their impact, to people who are already sustainable living experts! Learn more about Kate:
