OUR WORK

Roscommon Women’s Network are currently piloting a Textile Upcycling Training Project. As part of RWN’s Environmental Strategy, they are hoping to reduce the unsold textiles that are generated by their charity shop by upcycling these textile items into different products for sale! Participants in the project and the RWN Voluntary Management Committee developed the ‘CycleUp’ brand and logo to market the upcycled products.  RWN empower women to achieve sustainable development and to achieve individual or common goals.  Their work with individual women benefits the women themselves, their families and their communities.
