This group in association with OPIRG is creating more sustainable clothing options for students here on campus and educated students on the impact of the fashion they wear.

Threadwork focuses on both Environmental and Social Justice aspects while educating the community on "fast fashion." 

While staying on top of Fall trends is important to a lot of us, Threadwork is doing an amazing job at advocating the options available to for more sustainable clothing choices. Investing in well-made, ethically sourced or recycled goods, we can really make an impact in reducing our personal footprints!
