Rebear: A Change of Clothing
April 22, 11-3pm | Altschul Atrium
Barnard College's 4th annual Rebear Boutique is an interactive social and pedagogical experiment in changing the way we think about the clothes we wear. Members of the Barnard and Morningside Heights community will have a chance to shop for locally donated used clothes collected from Barnard students throughout the semester, and offered for sale in the Altschul Atrium. During the sale, shoppers can learn basic alterations and repairs at a mending station, and learn more about the social and environmental impacts of the apparel industry.
Buying used is one of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce your carbon footprint - and build out a fabulous wardrobe, usually while saving money. While we develop ways to make new clothes more socially and environmentally sustainable, we also need to support local, circular economy models that acknowledge and maintain the value of the things we already have. Proceeds from Rebear will support Student Climate Action at Barnard College.
