Upcycling project at Fox Valley Tech

May 9, 2013

From nbc26.com: “Upcycling project at Fox Valley Tech” —  Interior design students at Fox Valley Technical College are re-using what’s already been recycled.

Some of this semester’s final designs included “upcycled” art as part of a textile drive for Goodwill Industries. The students use of the art is also aimed at improving understanding of where those textiles come from.

FVTC Interior Design Instructor Kris Figy says, “We learned that there’s a lot of textile waste and we want to bring that to the attention of people, so we wanted a public awareness campaign. So we’ve created a display in our hallway talking about some of the facts.”

The group decided to partner with Goodwill because they have a large amount of resources available to help recycle clothing and textiles.
