A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:
The second annual Trashion Show was held at UTM in March 2020 and was hosted hosted by Creatives For a Change, Zero Waste UTM, UTM Student Union, and Greenwood. The theme of the night was “Rebellion” — a protest against the fast fashion industry.
The 2020 Trashion Show was part of UTM’s first ever Sustainability Week, which promotes the importance of preserving the well-being of the environment by reusing materials and preventing waste. In particular, the Trashion Show wanted to bring awareness to fashion and how it impacts the environment.
The Trashion show demonstrated creative and unique fashion can be made from reusable materials. A reminder that people must take a stand and rebel against fast fashion because the preservation of our environment and natural resources is more important than materialistic appearances.
