Mend Monday in Maker Hub-Colonnades

Bring your favorite worn-out clothes to Maker Hub-Colonnades to give them new life. Bring an old T-shirt and learn how to turn it into a reusable bag.

One-in-six people work in the global fashion industry, and the majority of these workers are women earning less than $3 a day. What can you do to help? 

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the Office of Sustainability in Maker Hub-Colonnades for an evening of making and mending!  We’ll supply the materials and knowledge needed to repair your favorite shirt or sew a button on your most beloved pair of jeans. Bring an old T-shirt and we’ll help you turn it into a reusable bag for all of your shopping needs.

This partnership between The Maker Hub and the Office of Sustainability encourages sustainable attitudes and waste reduction surrounding fashion by teaching Elon community members how to repair and upcycle clothing. 

This event is part of a series of events for Campus Sustainability Week.  See the Office of Sustainability Website for a full calendar of events
