“Trashion”, by the Truckee High School Envirolution Club, produced by Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships (SWEP). One of the highlights of the event each year is the Truckee High School Envirolution® Club’s performance of their hit “Trashion” show. In 2010 the high school students modeled over 35 outfits made out of various materials –some of which included: Netflix wrappers, Christmas lights, magazines, potato chip bags, gum wrappers, bubble wrap, Clif Bar wrappers, etc. As they were modeled, each outfit was described: types of materials, how they can be reduced, recycled, or eliminated, and the environmental impacts they cause. Don’t overlook the Trashion show – it’s truly an event not to be missed.
