Did you know, that synthetic clothing is one of the top contributors of micro plastic pollution in the world? That electric dryers use the most energy of all household appliances? That the total amount of greenhouse gases produced annually by the textile industry is more than all international flights and shipping combined? Sustainable fashion starts in our own closets. Join SVMoA to learn why and how to care for your clothes to make them last and reduce your environmental impact related to your wardrobe. Discussion will include environmental impacts of different kinds of textiles, social issues in clothing production, how to remove stains and odors from clothing with the least impact on the garment and environment, and just what, exactly, are textiles like "acrylic" and "tencel"? Presented by the Sun Valley Museum of Art.
