September 26th 
for this year's
Trash Makeover Challenge

Trash Makeover Challenge is a high profile contest for fashion designers, stylists, and models to create original high fashion looks out of recycled and recovered materials. This year celebrates Texas Campaign for the Environment’s 30th anniversary(!) and the event’s 11th year.


In the past it has drawn fashion visionaries and tastemakers, local celebrities, elected officials, top environmental activists, business leaders, and other prominent figures, mainly from Austin. The event was entirely online in 2020, which allowed the world to watch and participate. You can watch the entire 2020 Trash Makeover Challenge event online here!


Attend in 2021 to enjoy a unique fashion show that challenges designers to make clothing out of repurposed materials, participate in deciding the People's Choice awards, bid and win fantastic online auction items, and learn more about our work to fight pollution in Texas.
