A Project of
The Center for Sustainable Living

We give new life to reclaimed materials that would otherwise be discarded. Ultimately, we wish to act as a hub for creative artisans who are already producing items from used materials, as well as encourage others to see the benefit of creative problem solving by way of example and education. We want to imbue not only a sense of community involvement, but also establish a local identity of creative motion for everyone involved.

Trashion Refashion

The Trashion Refashion Runway Show is an annual fundraiser in early spring for Discardia and the ​Center for Sustainable Living. Designers make fashion out of materials destined for the landfill. It’s an event for the whole family you don’t want to miss!

Mending Day

Don’t throw away that favorite sweater or comfy pair of pants! Instead, bring your projects to Mending Day where Discardia members will help you mend your clothing or do it for you. This is also an opportunity to learn how to sew or work on any other project involving clothing. People of all skill levels, ages, and abilities are invited to use our sewing machines and basic supplies.
