While some search for fashionable clothes for a great price at the flea market or thrift store, the Tohatchi High students looked in the trash.
To celebrate Earth Day and fashion, Tohatchi High students put up the "Sustaining our Earth" event on April 23, which included a fashion show featuring work by the students.
Science Teacher Desiree Patterson said that the students had to show their ability to reduce, reuse and recycle by creating an outfit out of recycled material.
It was junior class project for students in Rolanda Francis's chemistry and environmental science class.
"I wanted them to experience something hands on. I wanted to celebrate their student work and student talent," Francis said. "It was something fun and different."
