SCRAP sustainable fashion class teaches youth how to have style and spare the climate at the same time

SCRAP began its Sustainable Fashion Design Program this spring to teach youth ages 12-18 about sustainable practices they can bring to their own closets. Through upcycling projects, the kids learn techniques such as hand-sewing, embroidery, creative purposing and garment construction. This fall, SCRAP plans on expanding the program by increasing school partnerships and creating curriculum that educates students about the fashion industry through an environmental lens.
