If you are looking for something to do in Cornwall the next few days, why not head over to Porthtowan beach and check out the campaign for wool.
The Campaign for Wool is celebrating the natural versatility and sustainability of wool
This Summer, The Campaign for Wool will create a Wool Beach Lodge on Porthtowan Beach in Cornwall from 3rd – 13th July. The interactive pop up will be home to an exciting programme of events and activities showcasing the versatility of wool during the British transeasonal climate. The Lodge will highlight the latest developments from leading brand partners in the worlds of interiors, sport performance and casual fashion, highlighting wool’s role in the next generation of renewable fibre products.
Visitors and holidaymakers will be able to sit and enjoy the lodge or take part in a range of summer beach activities including surfing, yoga, wool workshops, and beach movie screenings all hosted by Campaign for Wool supporters, as well as an exclusive hike with author and survival expert, John Hudson. Additional activities including beach litter clearing will also feature on the programme highlighting the eco-friendly nature of wool, which biodegrades in the land and ocean to reduce waste and help the planet.
