On March 3rd 2012, Students for Environmental Action & the Eco-Reps co-hosted the innovatively creative Third Annual Fashion Trashion Show in hopes of emphasizing the importance of waste minimization in a fun and engaging manner. Over 16 models representing various campus groups like Grounds for Change and Green Living & Learning Community strutted down the green runway fashioned in outfits made from assorted materials from bottle caps to toilet paper rolls found in their trash bins.
In the days leading up to the event, designers brainstormed their ultimate costumes that displayed their inspirations from robots to classy Victorian ladies. Putting together these outfits was no simple task either as seen by hot glue gun burns and the sewing needle pricks. Overall, the hard work paid off and the audience including guest judges was captivated by the spectacular show and excited about the gift giveaways
