Aware Fair

March 3 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

This information fair on the Breezeway features tables and demonstrations on sustainability and ways individuals can get involved. The following groups/tables will participate:

• Patagonia Worn Wear Tour: Patagonia’s biodiesel repair truck is traveling to colleges around the country to repair clothing for free and teach folks how to fix their own clothes. In an effort to repair more than just clothes, for this tour Patagonia has teamed up with the Post Landfill Action Network to create conversation and action towards a world with less waste. The Patagonia Worn Wear repair team can fix about 40 garments per day (any brand; sorry, no repairs on luggage or shoes). All repairs are made on a first come, first served basis. One repair per guest.
