5/6/2011 Inspiring the Next Generation

I’m excited to get back into the classroom.  We all know the most open and receptive students of living a sustainable life are those young enough to simply grow into it, as a lifestyle!  Luckily, I have the opportunity to present at a local high school; will be going through What is Eco-Fashion, Where do our clothes come from, Recycling v/s Upcycling, The Difference You can Make, and showing examples of upcycling designers across the world. Then my favorite part for this age group will be showing 6 of my pieces and asking THEM to tell me what they are made of!  I’ve never done this before, I’ve usually explained.  It will be fun to hear what they think and literally watch them thinking outside the box.  As always, I hope to inspire them to rethink and react!
