Thank you to everyone who joined and supported the 2021 event!

Thank you for joining us and supporting our favorite edgy, exciting, and creative event—the Trash Makeover Challenge! This unique fashion show featured amateur and professional fashionistas who use at least 90% recycled materials to craft spectacular garments and showcase them in a dazzling spectacle for attendees. Our theme this year was Fighting Dirty (Pollution) for 30 as we celebrated Texas Campaign for the Environment’s 30th anniversary!

This year we decided to hold the event online so people could participate virtually and safely from anywhere.


Our Emcee was Grammy award-winning, Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame legend Kathy Valentine of The Go-Go's

The event featured a live performance by Grammy-nominated musician with a message

The show also included a live & silent auction full of unique, donated items from all over Texas.

This event draws fashion visionaries and tastemakers, local celebrities, elected officials, top environmental activists, business leaders, and other prominent Texas figures. Join us next year to enjoy another unique show that challenges designers to make clothing out of repurposed materials, participate in deciding the People’s Choice awards, and learn more about our work to fight pollution all over Texas.
