"In the Bahamas, the term Junkanoo refers to a parade that happens every Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Revellers wear elaborate costumes made of cardboard, paper, scrap and natural materials, including straw plait, and dance down Bay Street, the main street running through the centre of Nassau," Kirkland writes in an article in the hard bound fifth edition of the Sustainability Compendium - ‘Going Circular’ brought out by Fibre2Fashion.
The phrase “junk a new” was declared by veteran Junkanoo practitioner and musician Dr Offfff as his band would make their costumes from any types of organic trash on the morning of the parades, literally turning junk into something new, Kirkland writes in her article 'Junk a New'.
