The number of miles of new ribbon (more than enough to wrap around the planet – and tie a decorative bow, of course) that shoppers wouldn’t have to buy if every family in the country reused just two feet of trimmings from previous years.
The Rubbish Renewed Community Garment creation offers a place to take a personal step towards walking more lightly on the planet. What will you do to generate less waste? Consume less? Ask yourself, “What one action can I take to lower my impact on the planet?” Make a pledge. Start today. Come on down to Bishops Barbershop (130 NW Oregon Ave) on Friday, December 1st, during Bend’s First Friday event, to take a pledge on items destined for the landfill. These items will be integral in the creation of the 2018 Community Garment, which will be featured prominently in the 8th annual Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show at The Midtown Ballroom on January 18th, 2018.
