Join us for Earth Day Fashion Forward each year in April for an exploration of sustainable fashion celebrating the rethinking of our use of materials to protect and adorn ourselves. We are working to reduce waste in our landfills, expand our options in fashion, and to promote the health of our planet. This event is fundraiser for Blue Skies Ahead’s Get-Out-The-Vote work.
Contemporary Fast Fashion is responsible for more greenhouse gases than international flights and maritime shipping combined, and also responsible for producing one fifth of global plastics and microfibers which threaten the health of our oceans. We are highlighting sustainable avenues of styling and dressing ourselves that are both new and old. Come and celebrate the Appalachian legacy of conserving, thrift, and reuse now the vanguard of the ecological fashion movement.
