TCE Turns 22!

TCE Turns 22!

Join us on Saturday, October 19th at Ironwood Hall to celebrate Texas Campaign for the Environment’s 22nd anniversary! Our third annual Trash Makeover Challenge is a unique competition for innovators in the fashion industry to highlight creative reuse by showcasing outfits made from recycled materials and reconstructed textiles. There will also be a silent auction filled with weekend getaway packages, fashion accessories for men and women, and stylish and sustainable items for the body, home and garden.

In 2012, amateur and professional designers turned out stunning outfits made of a wide variety of materials, guests enjoyed appetizers from The Salt Lick and browsed silent auction tables full of unique items, and a dance party followed the main event that kept attendees entertained well into the night. TCE supporters generously donated more than $44,000, we received excellent press coverage from print, television and online media, and we identified new communities and individuals to serve as allies in our efforts to improve sustainability across the state. For more on last year’s event, seeTCE’s photos on our Facebook page, blog coverage from Keep Austin Stylish and LA Fashion Snob, and local news coverage from KXAN.

This year the festivities will begin October 19th at 7:00 p.m. at Ironwood Hall, 505 East 7th Street (downtown Austin between Red River and Neches). Tickets include drinks and appetizers, and all proceeds will provide TCE with needed resources to sustain our mission of protecting our quality of life, health, communities and the environment.
