AS Zero Waste Committee is teaming up with the Post Landfill Action Network (PLAN) and Patagonia, Inc. to participate in Patagonia’s Worn Wear Tour. Patagonia is setting off on a cross country mission to encourage consumers to make their clothes last a lifetime. Patagonia is bringing repair staff on the road to offer free repairs on busted zippers, rips, tears, buttons and more-in addition to teaching people how to fix their own gear. 

This amazing event will include: repairs, food, movies, art, DIY, speakers, knowledge, and so much fun!
