Recycle Rangers, Assemble At Eastgate!

Eastgate has something cool and exciting in store for their little visitors! Our planet needs their help to keep it clean and litter free. After all, it is our responsibility to take care of it now and forever. With this in mind, Eastgate wants to show children (and parents) how important recycling is, and just how much fun it can be. Are you with us, Recycle Rangers?

Did you know that next year, Eastgate won’t be using any plastic shopping bags anymore? This is because they want to keep as much plastic out of the environment as possible and do their part for the planet!

Help make a difference by heading to Eastgate’s Aloe Court from 24 – 27 October 2019 between 11:00 and 17:00, where you'll be shown how to make fashionable items out of recycled material that Eastgate has collected; like plastic bottles, bottle tops and straws. From fashion design to stylish accessories, do it all the eco-friendly and eco-fashionable way with Eastgate Shopping Centre.


On Friday, 25 October and Saturday, 26 October, they will be hosting Fashion Upcycle Workshops – no bookings are necessary as the workshops will work on a first-come first-serve basis. These workshops will be conducted by South African artist, Threaded Dame. Threaded Dame started as a hobby but soon became an avenue of promoting issues close to their hearts. They use embroidery to channel their creativity into transforming everyday goods into inspirational and inclusive pieces. Threaded Dame’s Recycle Ranger workshops on the Friday and Saturday will include up-cycled clothing embroidery, painting and colouring.

For the most fashionable thing to do this October, look no further than Eastgate’s Recycle Ranger Fashion Edition!
