Most of the items we throw away can be given a second life. Austin Creative Reuse is a nonprofit that runs a reuse center where they collect, distribute, and sell reusable materials donated by businesses and individuals. ACR hosted its first ever fashion show featuring the work of over 26 designers--all of whom were challenged with making clothing out of reused materials such as other clothing items, LED lights, and even inner tubes.
