Lights, Garbage, Action: Sustainable Fashion


(The video newscast is disabled for this preview.)


1. Take a look around your house to find some recyclable or old materials. How could you upcycle them? What can you create?

2. Do you think the fashion industry has a positive or negative impact on the environment? Give an example.

3. What is a small change you can make in your life that will positively impact the environment?


Students will be able to analyze the causes of wastes (i.e. municipal solid waste, agricultural and animal waste, and commercial and industrial waste) and their effects on human health and the environment by examining various multimedia sources (websites, videos, and articles) to upcycle an item that combats waste generation.
