What: A Teens Turning Green spring initiative to inspire students to re think their wardrobe choices and gain an understanding about the global and environmental impact of simple purchases. The goal is to encourage a transition from conventional to conscious thinking for every day fashion!
Students are invited to apply here to host a ReStyled event showcasing eco-designed, fair trade, sustainable, repurposed, second hand, recycled, and upcycled fashion and accessory options which are both ethical and gorgeous. TTG will curate a collection of over 120 looks to travel school to school. These looks will be available for students to review and choose from in the “Look Book” link below starting January 24th!
When: Mid-February through May, 2013
Where: ReStyled events will be hosted on up to 15 high school and college campuses
Why: The size and reach of the fashion industry is enormous. Think about it this way, every single person on earth, all 7 billion of us, get dressed ever day. Buying less clothing, shopping for vintage and ethical fashions, recycling and upcycling, sharing and swapping are just some of the ways we can approach ethical fashion. Remember that clothing sold for cheap is generally manufactured by people who are paid a substandard wage, and made from fabrics and dyes that pollute the environment.
