In the use of Fabric waste or cloth waste, it can also reduce environmental pollution and reduce waste, especially cloth waste in Medan Estate Village, where the majority of the workers are fashion business activists and businesses related to the use of cloth. The method used in this study is the approach, training, and assistance carried out by researchers to the Medan Estate Village craft business group, fashion business activists, and PKK mothers.
