2017 Community Garment // What one action can you take to lower your impact on the planet?

first-friday1As we ring in the new year, reflect on years past, and make plans to create a brighter 2017, it seems like the right time to share the story behind our annual Rubbish Renewed “Community Garment” creation.   At each of our two shows, you will see this year’s “Community Garment”, which was inspired from pledges gathered at December’s “First Friday.”

On Friday, December 2nd, the Bend community came together at Cosa Cura to take pledges for the planet.  People asked, “What one action can I take to lower my impact on the planet?”   Pledges were written directly on discarded CD’s, which will be integrally pieced in the 2017 “Community Garment.”

The 2017 “Community Garment” will grace both runway shows, spreading the messages, and making a community shift for a more environmentally sustainable planet.   Look for this special garment on the runway!
