Sustainable Fashion Show Photos and Action Items

Thank you for attending the 2nd Annual Beyond the Label Sustainable Fashion Show & Tell on November 2nd!

We showcased a variety of amazing, environmentally conscious clothing companies and presented a panel of profound designers, film makers, and non-profit leaders. Saving the planet has never been more in style and we hope that you join us in our commitment to conscientious couture.

 As always, our goal is to educate but it is just as important to follow up that education with action. Here are the action items we offered at the fashion show. 

Take Action

Now that you have learned about unsustainable fashion and have seen how you can have a stylish and beautiful wardrobe that does not harm the planet or people, we encourage you to commit to doing at least one of the following:
1. Repair your clothes & accessories before buying new
2. Shop resale before buying new 
3. When buying new, look for sustainably manufactured clothing & accessories
 
Please make a commitment to do something and share it with us; Post on Sustainable Works Facebook Wall, Tweet with our handle @sustainablework, connect at #sustainablesm or send us an email gina.garcia@sustainableworks.org
