Trash 2 Trends: An Evening of Recycled Fashion

Participants of Trash 2 Trends

Trash 2 Trends is a fundraiser that brings the fashion and art of local artists together with the environmental community to promote sustainability in an innovative way.

Designers create looks from items headed to the landfill, these designs are featured on a runway, and the money raised by this event goes right back into the Orlando community to increase recycling, prevent litter and beautify our neighborhoods, green spaces and business districts.
