To start, we'll chat with a panel of experts about the social and environmental impacts of the fashion industry. We’ll also discuss supply chain policies and introduce the Fashion Transparency Index and how it can assist you in making informed purchases. *This panel will be in Spanish
Following will be a hands-on customization workshop and clothing exchange with Trendy&Green and beGaia! Bring up to 5 items in good condition to trade OR 1-2 items you'd like to revamp and restyle. We'll have patches, beads, paint, cloth, thread... everything you need to turn an old piece of clothing into something new! You’ll also have this time to exchange thoughts and ideas on sustainable fashion with others over a networking hour led by Net Impact Club.
