Textile Upcycling and Training
Roscommon Women’s Network is a local community project and charity based in Roscommon that is piloting textile upcycling training, in a project called Women’s Environmental Community Action Project (WECAN) funded through the EPA Green Enterprise programme.
Our aim is to reduce the unsold textiles that are generated by our charity shop by upcycling these textile items into different products for sale under their CycleUp brand.
In doing so, we empower women to achieve sustainable development and to achieve individual or common goals. Our work with individual women benefits the women themselves, their families and their communities.
