Program Description

Event Details

Come join library staffers Joy and Christine, fashion and second-hand clothing aficionados, for a presentation and discussion on the hows, whats, and whys of fast fashion during Global Fashion Week. Learn more about the lifecycle of our clothes and how to shop and dispose of clothes more sustainably.

We also invite you to:

1. Wear a favorite sustainable clothing item that is upcycled, second-hand, or handmade to the event.

2. Bring one small washed item you no longer need (and might not be in tip-top shape for donation) to contribute to our group TAKE BACK BAG so we can work together to divert up to 15 pounds of fashion waste from landfills.

3. Check out some of this related reading from our stacks!
