Tara, 16, has won the #EalingSewnUP Sustainable Fashion Mural Competition. The competition, run by Ealing's climate action group, #ActForEaling, was set up to promote sustainable fashion, making it fun and accessible for everyone in Ealing.

Tara, a pupil at St Benedict's School in Ealing, won the competition with her patchwork of images full of clever ideas on how to upcycle clothes, rather than buy new ones. It will be painted near St Saviour's Walk inside Ealing Broadway on Sunday 20 November between 10am and 4pm, and everyone is welcome to come along and watch the work in progress.

"I'm very happy to have won the competition", said Tara, "and hope that having the mural in Ealing will help to show people that there are many different ways they can recycle and reuse clothes. Social media has a huge influence on what people buy and wear, but you can find almost everything you want in charity shops."

Tara explains: "In the fashion industry, it takes 2,700 litres of water to make one cotton T-shirt. So, if there are clothes you don't want any more, swap them or give them to charity."
