Come and See How Fashionable Zero Waste Can Be!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AS Sustainability Public Relations Intern
In addition to the fashion show, several sustainability organizations will provide attendees with information about zero waste and ways to make every day sustainability efforts.
Students from various organizations will model second-hand clothing to reinforce the message that reusing clothes can be a priority. The emcee will provide information about some unsustainable aspects of the fashion industry and suggest more sustainable practices.
Audience members will be invited to create their own unique second-hand outfits from used clothing—some items will be provided. There will be a chance for these on-the-spot designers to model their designs.
Other activities coinciding with the event include a Freecycle table from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., where attendees can donate and take items, and a Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream sale to benefit Japan earthquake relief efforts. Net Impact Undergrad, a program that introduces students to sustainable management practices, will host both of these activities.
The Associated Students at CSU, Chico is currently working toward a goal of zero waste by 2015. The zero waste concept is something anyone can support through buying and selling products that have good durability and high life expectancy.
