Sustainable Style + Festival Fun

I spent my Memorial Day weekend talking about sustainable fashion to music fans in a little country town called Chillicothe, IL.  Sound odd?  Add 14,000 fans, several dozen bands, and a green festival approach to mix, and things start to make a little more sense.

I was hired to lead a panel discussion on sustainable style and host an eco-friendly clothing swap at Summer Camp Music Festival, where live music fans gather each May to dance under the sun and stars to their favorite bands.  Summer Camp took a very green approach to the festival this year, and it was refreshing to see how many music fans were genuinely interested in the concept of eco-friendly fashion.

(The music and organic beer weren't too shabby either).
