Green Clothing

recyrecy picGlenville State College is going to be holding a fashion show where students will try to make the latest fashions with…paper wrappers and plastic bottles. The GSC Recycling Club will sponsor the Junk Funk Fashion Show to help promote recycling and the protection of the environment by practicing ways on being green for the planet. Students can use old pieces of clothing, plastic items, and cans for their creative ideas for clothing, but any sharp objects, such as glass and metals must be put on the fabric beforehand.  This is in order to avoid serious injuries. You can make shirts, hats, and even jewelry with whatever recyclable material you can find around the house. From a t-shirt made out of shopping bags and newspapers, to a hat made of old jeans, cardboard, and cans, you can make it. In order to enter the event, you must submit a description of your clothing, with the needed materials and how to make it.  This must be submitted to the GSC Recycle Club on Tuesday, April 9.  These entries can be done in groups or individually. Prizes will depend on creativity and duplication as the fashion show is on Tuesday, April 16 at 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Rusty Musket. For more information, you can contact Noel Cawley at noel.cawley@glenville.edu. Don’t forget that saying: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
