Recyclable Designers

Its becoming more evident that we need more than Earth Day to make us aware that we need to take care of our planet. The things we know as landfills are quickly reaching their limits and recycling must become our first priority if we want to leave our planet to future generations.

As future designers what can we do? How can Fashion Care?

At Fashion we are dedicated to this cause. We know how valuable our environment is and we gather to promote ideas that will inform others how we can save our Planet.

Fashion Cares is a club that serves to enlighten our students about how they can use volunteering and community service as a tool for making our world a better place.

So what did Fashion Cares collaborate with this time around? With the Chelsea Community Composting Project – Community members came to drop off their old pumpkins to recycle for composting and Word Spread about our Recyclable Design!
