On September 20th, Shan Studios will be showing “The True Cost,” a documentary on sustainability in our fashion consumption. While we all know now about the importance of reducing our usage of single-use plastics like straws or cups, we would like to introduce you to another way we can be more sustainable and kinder to the planet. Fashion is cited as one of the top 10 most polluting industries. We want to present an opportunity for our community to learn about the clothes we buy, as well as have a productive discussion on how we can be more sustainable with our choices. Companies and individuals in the community who work in sustainability, some specifically in fashion sustainability, will be in attendance to help discuss steps we can take to reduce our carbon footprint with our clothing choices.
On top of this donation-based event, we will be serving a free homemade vegetarian buffet dinner (with vegan options) alongside the screening.
