Make something new from something old! Reuse is one way to reduce waste which conserves resources. The purpose of the eco-fashion show is to promote the idea of reuse: take used clothing or any used materials and making them into a new, wearable fashion. Re-fashion is gaining in popularity as more people adopt a more sustainable lifestyle by reducing waste, reusing and recycling.
How to participate in the GREENLIGHT Fashion Festival:
1. Take a photo of the materials you will use in your re-fashion design. Remember, your eco-fashion must be made of at least 80% of used materials.
2. Create your new fashion. You, or someone you may choose, will be modeling the fashion on stage during the awards ceremony.
3. Take a photo of your finished fashion.
4. Submit your photos by going to Midpenmedia.org/greenlight and click on Submit.
