Trashion a la mode, “A Trashformation of Undisciplined Minds of Nigeria” Says Designer Layola

Stop, Don’t Drop, an anti-litter initiative in Abuja, is set to launch and disseminate 50,000 bumper stickers to sensitize and commit FCT drivers to a ‘no litter’ culture.

The activity forms part of its events to commemorate the 2016 World Environment Day (WED).

According to Projector Initiator, Adiza Ujo, “motorists and pedestrians are the biggest litterers in the city”. Ujo observed an upsurge of litters following the recent fuel hike that saw drivers queuing-up at petrol stations. “As they queue up they eat, drink and drop them on the ground. We want to create awareness on the litter situation in the city and Nigeria”.

Dissemination of the stickers begins on Saturday, prior to the WED on Sunday, June 5.

Designer, Ubagwu Layola of Layola U Crafts, declares it a ‘Trashformation’ of the undisciplined minds of Nigerians. She noted Trashion is designers’ contribution to build a better environment.

Stop, Don’t Drop, in collaboration with designers, green initiatives, Silverbird and GoTv will host a 2-day fashion show and recyclables exhibition entitled Trashion a la mode, to sensitize the public on the benefits of proper waste disposal and waste repurposing from the 4th to 5th June.

Funto Boroffice, CEO of Chanja Datti, a recycling company in Abuja, says both events aim to persuade Nigerians to view wastes as resources. “fashion and waste form part of our everyday lives. It makes sense to put both together”.

Fifteen fashion designers from Nigeria and Africa create high fashion pieces from off-cuts –discarded pieces of clothes, plastics, nylons, papers and bottle. Borrofice emphasized that “the general idea is to generate discussion about Nigeria’s waste situation,” “and to make the litter discussion fun,” added Ujo.

Trashion, Borrofice says, will congregate like minds, and exhibit to the public different ways to repurpose their wastes, make money from waste, as well as acquaint the public with recycling organs and recycled product producers such as the Village Weavers, recycling team from American University of Nigeria (AUN), Yola, Chanja Datti and many more.

      Is your blog likely to develop into a content producing service or platform to promote your business?
      Do you intend to blog for a long time?
      Do you aim to build a brand?

      These are questions that will determine whether you should simply pay for a blog (and register the blog name officially) or you want to blog for fun.

      I have been there. Just take your time. Meantime, pack up a good amount of exclusive contents while you contemplate the issue. Original content never hurt anybody.

  20. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely should i encounter your blog that’s both educative and interesting,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough women and
    men are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m happy i discovered this in my look for something regarding this.

    of your own site? Its adequately written; I like what youve got to
    say. But you could possibly could a tad bit more when it comes to
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for just having 1 or 2
    pictures. You may could space it better?
