Trash 2 Trends

2020 Trash 2 Trends

Trash 2 Trends is a fundraiser that brings the fashion and art of local artists together with the environmental community to promote sustainability in an innovative way. The show features local designers who create runway looks from items headed to the landfill.

The money raised by this event goes right back into the Orlando community to increase recycling, prevent litter and beautify our neighborhoods, green spaces and business districts.

Calling All Artists, Designers and Fashionistas

We are now accepting applications for the 2020 Trash 2 Trends event.
