Event Description: 

Apparel and textiles is the second most-polluting industry on the planet. This interactive event, which includes a used clothing sale, hands-on workshops on repair and reuse, and a student design challenge, will explore the social and environmental impacts of our clothing, paying particular attention to the roles that women and circular economies might play in reversing the damage.

The boutique and workshops will take place 1–5 PM. A panel follows at 6 PM. Scholars and activists Deborah Drew and Maxine Bedat join Sandra Goldmark, associate professor of professional practice in the Barnard Theatre Department and director of campus sustainability, for a discussion about how we all might create solutions for living in a more sustainable world.
