If your a designer who has an interest or specialty working with recycled materials and are interested I am a student writer based out of California looking to assemble an article and give you some free publicity! With the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this April 2010 I would like to write an article on young designers who use thrift, or throwaway items. Please comment or email me back at
Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi, I am a college fashion instructor (El Paso Community College) and a number of my students work on "Thrift shop chic"... and some amazing garments have come out of it. Maybe I can find some students who are working on current items.

We also sponsor an apparel design competition for garments MADE of recycled goods... paper, magazines, egg shells and more...
