GATF on Eco Style

Standard

We love this post on Global Action Through Fashion, one of our phenomenal world-changing Project Green Challenge partners!

Today’s Eco Style Challenge

We are proud to partner with Teens Turning Green on the Project Green Challenge, which has gone off with a bang! We specifically worked with them on today’s Eco Style Challenge and hope that you will take it.

Teens Turning Green has empowered students around the nation to lead a movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities. As today’s challenge says, most people don’t realize that thousands of chemicals and massive amounts of energy and resources are used to turn raw materials and crops into the textiles that make our clothing. This process poses numerous environmental and human health threats, not to mention social justice concerns. Young people will be a vital part of the movement to make the fashion industry an industry that helps the world instead of hurting it. You can take action, and today’s Challenge helps you learn how. You can also find tips on our Take Actionpage.

We also want to pay tribute to the Project Green Challenge’s amazing Eco Look Book, which features a different eco look for each day of the Challenge. The model is activist and co-founder of Teens Turning Green, Erin Schrode. Styling and art direction was done byMegan Lynn Kott. We recommend checking out some of the companies below to learn about what sustainability means in fashion.
