Presentation: 24th June 2017

Everybody likes fashion and fashion shows. But fashion
is not only nice, it creates a lot of waste, when people buy new clothes very
often.

So why not make fashion out of old materials like old
clothes and even waste!

The main idea was to combine two important things-do
something against careless treatment of our environment and creating fashion
without buying new material.

Our school had started a city cleaning action before on
28th April 2017 which was very successful.

We – seventeen students of grades 7-10 – started
sorting the bags to see what we could use for our fashion show, it was a lot!
Then we started to make new things out of old ones. We met in the afternoons ,
discussed our ideas and started the “production”. It was amazing to see the
results. After four workshops we finished our work and were ready for a waste
fashion show.

After presenting our fashion in front of some school
classes we went to a central meeting of students representatives in Güstrow.
There we showed the participants how we do something against climate change and
for our environment.
