Two eco-friendly and sustainable business in Weymouth are joining forces to help empower woman and make them look and feel good.

Re-Cy-Cool, which sells repurposed clothes, and Honnor & Queens, which creates bespoke headdresses and jewellery from recycled items, are helping to promote sustainability in the Weymouth area.

The two online stores have come together to create an event called 'Chick Fest' to allow women to still feel glamorous, but without having to pay through the roof.

Charmaine Walby, founder of Re-Cy-Cool, said: "We are all about promoting sustainability and empowering women to make them look and feel amazing, at any age.

"Our clothing items and accessories literally will not cost the earth. We know it's challenging times for people so we are very keen to show our customers that you do not have to spend lots of money to look a thousand dollars.

"All of our items are 100 per cent recycled, it's our duty to help promote sustainability.

"We source all our items in and around Dorset." 

The event is free for anyone to attend and will be held at the Lugger Inn, Chickerell on Sunday, March 24 from 6pm until 8pm.

Alison Honnor founder of Honnor & Queens, added: "Honnor & Queens grew up in an era of sustainability, so for me it's nothing new to be sustainable.

"With each decade passing we are very much aware of climate change. The fashion industry is one of the highest contributors to this world wide.

"Honnor & Queens creates bespoke headdresses from repurposed materials, that have been disregarded.

"We give everything a new lease of life designing something special."

She added: "When Re-Cy-Cool & Honnor & Queens team up magical things start to happen, we like to call it the Honnor & Queens/Re-Cy-Cool experience.

"We love helping to create various different looks for our customers. Uplifting tracks are usually flowing so everybody can sing along and dance whilst shopping and socialising -  it's like a fun night out. 

"Come along for some true retail therapy and feel free to dress up - we will be in sparkles."
