Junico Kids visit VAPS School to introduce the concept of preloved fashion to reduce the environmental impact of fashion. Calling for interest from other schools to book an interactive mini-course on sustainable fashion for students aged 5-15

CONCORD, Australia - EntSun -- Team Junico Kids visits Victoria Avenue Public School (VAPS) to introduce the concept of preloved fashion as a way to reduce the environmental impact of fast fashion.

Last week marked the launch of the Junico Kids school visit program intended for students aged 5-15 years, coinciding with the inaugural school visit at VAPS in Concord West. Through the program, Junico Kids hope to instil the importance of reduce & reuse to school students from a young age.

VAPS has been holding the Festival of Innovative Ideas (Fii) since 2017, which provides "an opportunity for students to both showcase their own innovations and be inspired by experts in a range of fields who 'bring creative ideas to life every day". The concept aligns with the VAPS values of "Innovate, Inclusive and Inspiring".

Since its inception and webstore soft-opening earlier this quarter, Junico Kids have confirmed parents' appetite to be increasingly conscious of what we can do collectively to delay baby and kids clothing from reaching the landfill. Given how well-aligned the values of VAPS and Junico Kids, Ms. Baumgart, a Stage 2 Teacher at VAPS, invited Junico Kids to be one of the expert presenters in Fii 2020. Miss Baumgart said that it "links to your (Junico Kids) mission… the kids are so lucky for this opportunity".

The session was attended by 60 Stage 2 students from mainstream and inclusive classes, where the children made a bag from an old / unused t-shirt. The arrangement of Fii this year due to COVID-19 did not seem to take away the curiosity and enthusiasm of VAPS students during the session via Zoom. "I was blown away by how receptive and engaged the students were. I thought I'd come in to share ideas with our friends at VAPS and it turned out that I came away feeling inspired and energised. It was a very rewarding experience for me. I hope that the company will send me to many more visits" said Adi from Junico Kids.
