The Malta Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (MSPCA) is hosting “Reloved,” a unique event on September 14th at the Maria Rosa Winery Estate.
This event serves a dual purpose: raising awareness for animal welfare and promoting fashion sustainability.
The evening will feature informative presentations about the NGO’s ongoing efforts, a thrift-themed fashion show, captivating dance and acting sketches, as well as delectable food and wine.
Funds raised will support the MSPCA’s mission, which entails advocating for animal kindness, preventing cruelty, and upholding the rights of animals according to Malta’s Animal Welfare Act.
Since its inception in 1937, the MSPCA has been a dedicated shelter for animals, currently housing mainly dogs and cats. The organization has taken in over 100 animals this year and successfully rehomed 90. The event not only highlights animal welfare but also addresses the pressing need for fashion sustainability.
The fashion industry’s environmental impact is significant, being the second most polluting sector globally. Cotton production, a major contributor, uses large amounts of pesticides and water. The fashion sector is responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions and 20% of wastewater.
“Reloved” seeks to emphasize the interconnectedness of nature, animals, and humans and the importance of sustainability. It encourages responsible consumption and environmental stewardship.
The MSPCA aims to raise awareness about preserving the planet for future generations while supporting animal welfare. The event calls on the community to come together for a sustainable and compassionate world, benefiting animals and the environment alike.
