We at Liverpool World Centre have been admiring some of the great work from the Year 6 class at Holy Trinity primary school in Sefton as part of the Sew Many Trees project.
Participants taking part in this project are currently transforming their old and unwanted textiles into a forest of sewn trees. The scheme, which is the first of its kind in this region, is due to begin in November 2014 and the project aims to reduce the 22, 000 tonnes of textiles which are thrown away each year in Merseyside.

The Year 6 class from Holy Trinity are creating their textile tree according to the theme of the rainforest as this is one of the topics which they are studying this term. They intend to keep working on their tree and adding to it in their lessons, we can’t wait to see what their tree will look like when it is fully grown!
If you are interested in having you school or community group take part in the Sew Many Trees project, or would just like more information, please email Project Manager Liz Atherton at email@example.com.
