2nd Annual Rubbish Renewed – A success!

It is hard to believe that the 2nd annual Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show has come and gone!   We took a strong event and, because of the community support and involvement, exceeded all of our goals.   For a complete line up of photos from Tambi Lane Photography, please go to the gallery below.
  • We had more in attendance this year – an estimated 300+ at each of our two shows
  • We made more money for REALMS Charter School’s Arts Program –  $10,500
  • We executed our first ever “Business Challenge” with 6 businesses participating on the runway
  • We had more students submissions and more students on the runway than last year
  • We executed our Rubbish Renewed Mentorship program with students working diligently every Wednesday afternoon in November under the guidance of Allison Murphy of UtilituSEW
  • We demonstrated how to enter the holiday season more sustainably through creative present wrapping and drinking from re-useable Silipints at all of your holiday parties
  • We had 34 garments on the runway (in each show), clearly demonstrating the sustainable and creative spirit of Bend
  • We had a fabulous marketplace with 17 local vendors, promoting local holiday shopping
  • We satiated people’s appetites with local food carts and helped washed it all down with beverages from our favorite local beverage businesses
  • We had a large volunteer squad that lightened the load for the organizers
  • We had more sponsors and people involved than ever before!
