“Fast fashion isn’t free. Someone, somewhere is paying.” – Lucy Siegle
The Juice Truck and I are thrilled to team up with Chloe Popove of My Modern Closet to screen The True Cost, a documentary that dives deep into the hidden world of fast fashion. The fashion industry is now the third most polluting industry in the world, and we believe it’s time for a change. And what better time to focus on this issue of overconsumption than the holidays?
Our monthly movie nights take place at Stretch Yoga in Chinatown. We like to keep things intimate, so expect about thirty fellow movie-watchers. This means there are no bad seats in the house. Everyone can hear and all are welcome to participate in a little group discussion afterwards.
A movie night wouldn’t be complete without snacks, so come hungry to nibble. We are beyond excited that Melissa of Spread’em Kitchen will be joining us with her incredible cashew-based dips and spreads. You might have noticed her dips at all the nice grocery stores around town – they are bright and beautiful! Her main flavours include Beet, Spicy Carrot, Cilantro and Jalapeno Cashew. Read more about Spread’em here. The Juice Truck will also be providing cold pressed juice and I’ll make a big batch of sweet and salty popcorn.
Tickets are $10 and 100% of sales will be donated to non-profit community organization Fresh Roots. We will be accepting cash or debit at the door.
To reserve your spot, simply email me (erin at itstodiefor dot ca) with the number of tickets you’d like under your name. (Note: tickets usually sell out in 24 hours so email me quickly if you’re keen on joining!)
