For those who don’t want to get their hands dirty but still want to contribute to Earth Month, a local non-profit needs help from local talent to put together a show highlighting sustainable fashion.

UpCycle Creative Reuse Center is a local nonprofit that collects items for reuse in arts and crafts and learning purposes. The organization hosts classes and workshops highlighting reusability.

UpCycle is hosting a ‘Re-Fashion Show’ on April 20 at The Garden ALX (5380 Eisenhower Avenue) to benefit UpCycle. The runway show kicks off at 5 p.m., followed by an after-party from 6-7 p.m. According to a release:

The Trash to Treasure Movement, a sustainable shopping and creative reuse advocacy resource, will be presenting a sustainable fashion show that will highlight the work of creative reuse fashion designers for 2024 Earth Day weekend. All proceeds of the event will benefit UpCycle Creative Reuse Center and their mission to inspire all people to explore and create by engaging our community in art-making experiences with reuse materials.

Tickets to the show are $20 but several volunteer positions still need to be filled, including:

  • Fashion photographer
  • Hair and makeup stylists
  • Master of Ceremonies
  • Videographer
  • Fashion show stage crew
  • Social media manager
