NEWS RELEASE
THE LONGMONT LIBRARY
*************************
Believe it or not, the average American produces over 1,700 pounds of trash per year. That’s a whole lot of landfill material.

The Longmont Public Library has decided to showcase other uses for some of that garbage with its online “Trashion Show,” beginning Monday, June 29. 

This is an all-ages program challenging participants to create haute couture from recycled materials such as bubble wrap, plastic and cardboard. Those in short supply of good, clean trash can pick up a specially curated bag of fashion trash at the Library's Curbside Delivery station on the Library's east side Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., starting June 29.

Trashion creations may be clothing or accessories, and trashion designers are encouraged to be imaginative! Adults, teens and children can work singularly or as teams and then submit their designs via email by July 13 for display on the Library’s social media pages.

The program is intended to highlight the abundance of trash we generate in our daily lives, as well as featuring creative reuse. So, get to work and fashion yourself some trashion!
